I finished the quilt for my grand daughter!!!
What do you think? It’s made of doubled flannelette squares so that both sides show the design. The back of the quilt (on the left) are smooth seams, while the front (right side of photo) have the seams and edges all clipped for a raggedy effect.
I just know my ever inquisitive little one is going to love fluttering her fingers through those frills.
I wish I could! After spending hours and hours clipping the edges of 72 squares, my fingers can barely move!!!
But I think it was worth it. I can’t wait to cuddle up with my little grandbaby. ~big grin~
Your turn: Did you or your kids have a special “blankie” as a child?
I never had a special blanket, though my sisters each had a nice soft fuzzy one each, not hand made though. We also have several huge crocheted blankets from my grand grandmother which are very special to us. And warm in the winter too!
Oh, Imogen, reading your comment makes me want to reach out and give you a big hug in a soft fuzzy blanket of your very own! I love those crocheted ones.
What a beautiful blanket! Your grand-baby is one lucky girl!
Beautiful quilt! My boys have handmade ones from their grandma too. I also had a pink silky little blankee growing up that I lost on a family vacation. Still grieving the loss. 🙂
Thanks Jennifer and Amy. I’m so sorry you lost your blanket Amy. I can so relate. My youngest daughter lost her favorite teddy when she was 2, a gift from my mom who had since passed on. I’m not sure which one of us, mourned that more!
Love it, Sandra! Beautiful…know she will cherish it forever!
Beautiful quilt, Sandra. My 7 year old still snuggles with the blanket my cousin made for her. Your grand baby will love it.
It’s just beautiful!
Thank you so much Jackie, Alison and Loree
Oh, it’s lovely, Sandra–great job! But wait, you are TOO YOUNG to have a granddaughter! Were you ten when you got married?
I love you, Jeanette 🙂 I was 20 and so was my daughter when she got married.
