Using up the pieces....

This is for the baby of a very special young lady I bonded with through Raina. Charmayne's Blessing....

The backing is flannel with white stars and moons..the white squares on the front have letters of the alphabet. I used various strips of novelty fabric for the border. It isn't very big....only about 37" x 48" but easier for him to carry it around when he gets big enough.

Thank you, Donna. I feel bad in using 'leftovers' for the border, but that's what I had.

Thank you, Gwen. I think it's cuddly, too. This gal was a tremendous help and eased my mind in 'being there' for Nick and Julie.

Marsha, Thank you. Now that I've made one, I like this size and also like it without batting and using flannel for the backing. It really does seem to be just right for a toddler to drag around.

If you don't tell them they are leftovers they will never know - it looks great! It looks cuddly and comforting.

When I saw the pic the lovely borders caught my eye first!!!!

I think small children love to drag around blankets, at least they do in my family!!!!! and he can use it year round.

I thought you planned that border! lol - don't feel bad!
I need to try flannel as a backing - I just finished quilting a charity quilt for Salvation Army - I could have used flannel! darn! Our Guild dresses bears and makes kid size quilts-very cute - to give at Christmas. I still have to dress the bear. The size will finished at 36" x 45". I was using fabric I had on hand (yay ~ for me, since I don't have much of a stash.)I could have used flannel for the back.
