    Wink Baby Receiving Blanket

    Hi,

    I stumbled across some MSQC tutorials on YouTube and fell in love with the receiving baby blanket. Less than a month after viewing the video, several times I might add, my daughter told me she was organising a baby shower for a work colleague. I couldn't have timed it better. Here's a picture of two blankets made from the same fabrics but in reverse patterns - the second finished today. These were so quick to do!

    Now I know this isn't strictly in keeping with what appear to be (to me at least) the very complex rules around quilting vis a vis colours, patterns etc, but Jenny's demonstration on YouTube was so cute - I couldn't pass up the opportunity. We know the baby will be a boy, so a cheeky monkey fabric, I thought was ideal.

    I have never done any quilting, I have only ever embroidered or dressmaking, but I think for my first true foray into quilting I may next try my hand at the zig zag table runner.

    Thank you Jenny for some very inspiring tutorials.

    PS had a little trouble adding a picture, so I do hope that what I managed to upload is OK

    And you are a newbie, too! WELCOME. Love your blankets.

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I love them! I have done a few of them, too and have to watch the video several times every time I go to do one of them. We love to see all kinds of projects, they don't have to be quilting. We have lots of talented people on here (costumers, stuffed animals, etc). Welcome to the forum!
