I finished Becca's baby blanket this morning - not too shabby for a 2 day project!
This is the whole thing laid out - I love the ric rac inset in the border, I have seen this technique used before, but this was my first try at it!
The back is a simple yellow flannel with no batting as an inner layer, this makes the blanket cuddly but not bulky. I top stitched along all the seams and did some extra stitching to beef up the border.
I wanted the corners to be nice and tidy, and didn't like the look of the ric rac crossing, so I just added little fabric corners which I think gave a clean look.
I like how in this last picture you can see the sun shining through the lacy ric rac edge, this blanket is so sunny, and all I need to do now is give it a good wash and then mail it off to my big sister!
