Another finished blanket

pink flannel rag quiltpink flannel rag quilt backSo my niece texted me the other day and said “Can you make one of these?”

So I looked to see what I had around for material and started cutting and sewing. I wanted to see how much work it was and how much fabric I have around.  Well I put this little pink one together in one afternoon. It just kept going and going and going. And before I knew it I was done.

I think it took me just as long to do all the snipping of the seems as it did to  put the whole thing together!

So I gave it to her one evening and she just looked at me in total surprise – she didn’t think I would have it done so quickly.  Then it dawned on me, her youngest one (about 5 months old) is a little boy and here I was handing her a pink blanket.

So, off I went to see what other fabric I had around and I found 2 pieces of blue; a solid and a dotted one. And of course I put that together too. (I forgot to take a picture of the finished one, so I’ll have to update this next time I see them.)

So naturally, when I gave her the little blue one, I get a text from here “The big kids want to know if they get blankets too?”  I made a deal with her, she brings me the fabric and I’ll make the blankets.

Yep, I got a bag of flannel material to make blankets for the “Big” kids too.  I will post when I have them done.
