Another baby gift to show you today. This little cot blanket with its wonky piecing was made for my neighbour, who managed to produce a sweet little girl after two very boisterous boys...
Made from vintage handkerchiefs and sheets, and some of the left overs from my "Sweet" quilt. The back is vintage flannel and the inner is cotton calico to make it more useful for our Brisbane temperatures. To help hold it all together, I ran a few rows of hand quilting across it and machine bound the edges.
I was a bit nervous that she would not like it. It is hard making gifts that are very much your own style, you really put yourself out there. Anyways, I need not have worried as she adores it (apparently hankies are special to her as her late grandmother always gave them to her...)
I seem to have picked up some nasty flu, so crafting this week will be restricted to the sofa with my hook and cotton, as the crochet Hexies are just the thing when you are feeling poorly.
Hope you have a fab week!
