I want a fuzzy blanket

I was over visiting our friends a few weeks ago. Andrea's daughter Lily and my Jessie are best buddies, they love each other, it's so cute. I happened on Lily's Christmas list and she had written "fuzzy blanket". I told Andrea that we could help Santa out.

It worked out good, because I'd been wanting to do a rag quilt someday, and fuzzy blankets means rag quilt right?

I bought 3 receiving blankets at Target on clearance, score! I cut them up into squares and dug through my stash and found some minkie and soft fleece leftover from previous quilts, and made this adorable little "fuzzy blanket" for Lily. Jessie helped a lot, she ironed everything, cut out the batting squares and layed the quilt out. Go Jess!This was fun, I am definetly making more someday!

LOVE IT!
I wanted to tell you...
had to buy a new sewing machine a couple of weeks ago (mine died) anyway...bought a Janome Magnolia, I think 7330 or 7660 something anyway...got a name of a lady that teaches beginning quilting. I think I'm going to call her after the first of the year ;)

I've made several of these quilts and never thought of using receiving blankets, minky, and fleece all together. What a darling quilt!

Nice cross over stitches on the blanket give them a feel also other than the look.
