Not mine...but, I've had fun making blankets for my friend's babies. Now that my friends have seen the blankets I can post pictures on here. Well, Chels has seen pictures of the blanket, it isn't done yet. The miniature version is done, but I was not going for miniature when I started making it.

The first blanket I made was for my dear friends Bobby & Tyra who have been in the process of adopting a baby from Ethiopia for MANY months. It was such such good news to hear that baby Desta was finally coming home last month.

I love the little buntings that have been all over craft blogs lately and couldn't wait to make a blanket using them. It reminded me of the verse in Song of Songs that says "He brought me to his banquet table, and His banner over me is Love."

I used minky fabric on the other side of the blanket because it is the perfect weight for babies.

The 'work in progress' blanket for my sweet friend Chelsea's baby Carter (due in July) was my first attempt at piecing fabric for a quilted look.

It is minky squares on one side and flannel on the other. It will look a little different once it is actually finished instead of pinned together... but you get the idea.

Congratulations friends on your sweet baby girls!

  3. The blanket is Wonderful! Desta loves to rub soft fabric against her face when she is falling asleep. She loves this one! Thanks so much!
