Before the "Leap Day Giveaway" I went into my sewing room and started digging through a few bins of fabric that I forgot I had.
In my stash I found eight pieces of coordinating gorgeous flannel from Robert Kaufman. It is really thick and soft and just yummy. And I have been making Self mitering receiving blankets for the punk and we both love them. (you can find tutorials here and here) So I started to make a few self mitering blankets and figured out that the Kaufman flannel is only 36" wide. Boo....that's not even nearly big enough and so it was either piece it (I didn't have enough for that) or just make a regular receiving blanket. It's too small for the punk but I work with a woman who just had a baby! The pink and white is the front and the green floral is the back (I guess it doesn't matter, they are exactly the same)
Next I found a darling blue panel and a coordinating backing fabric. I have a good friend who had a little boy a few months ago and I have been amiss in not sending a present! I have made quilts or blankets for each of her other children and I know she is particularly fond of the flannel blankets so I am going to send this one to her now that it's finished!
I really do love this quilt top. So I now need to decide on borders (I'm leaning to no border) and then find a back fabric and quilt it!
That's all...but not bad for a weekend!!
