My new favorite baby blankets

I have a new favorite baby gift to make. This is one I made for a friend recently. The top is quilters cotton, the bottom is fleece. They are lightweight, but warm. This one is big, 36"x44" so it fits in a crib nicely, and would make a great soft "tummy time" blanket. Plus, they are adorable!

I found the pattern here: I just made mine as big as I could using 1 yard cuts of fabric. I found 1 yard fleece remnants frequently at JoAnn's, so I just tried to find cute fabric to match.

I will have to let you know how well they work after the baby is born, and I try out my own!
