A few months ago, The Purl Bee posted their February quilt of the month. I have to say, I was totally blown away by the method. I don't know much about quilting methods, and I don't think I would have thought of that in a million years. I ran right out and bought some fabric to make a quilt for my daughter's big-girl bed (yeah, I know she's not even 5 months old, I got excited).
I decided to make a blanket for an upcoming cousin's baby for today's project. I had this fabric:
The only fabric I had to match was a plain pink flannel. The two together didn't seem very personal. I think I got them on a good sale, but it was late in the week when most of the cuter stuff was gone.
I decided to dress up the pink side using some circles of fabric using a similar method to the one The Purl Bee teaches. It adds just a little something more. I hope it makes it a little more special for my cousin and her baby.
