blanket

So here it is, my first ever baby blanket/quilt, all finished! I hand quilted a little cross (or a kiss!) in the middle of each flower on alternate diagonal rows in the fabric which held the layers together nicely and made it look quite cosy. It also made the back look nice with the little regular gathers it created. I didn't really have fun with the sewing machine part, but it was neccessary as I wanted it to be a useable blanket that you didn't need to think twice about throwing in the washing machine. Not all of the stitches are perfect but I'm not sure anyone else would notice. All in all I am pleased with how it turned out, and I hope my niece will roll around on it and snuggle up on it for a good few years to come. : )

Quilted kisses, that's cute. The blanket is practical and pretty. I bet the fleece is really soft.
