When I was pregnant with Roan my Mom kept funneling in hand-made receiving blankets. I thought it was a bit excessive until baby came and we were actually using more than two daily and the laundry was piling up.
All caught up in quilting I forget about simple uses for fabric I love. The dala horse fabric was perfect for making my Swedish friend a baby shower gift and the Anna Maria Horner voile is not only soft and wide, but also on sale all over the place. A receiving blanket provides that sweet gratification of matching fabrics too. The color match was perfect. I generally go three pack when making these, but another quilt is on the way.
What’s your favorite quick baby gift?
