My dil was supposed to have her baby shower today, but it had to be cancelled. I was so sad for her, she was going to travel home to NC from GA to see all of her high school and college friends and celebrate her first baby. I sent her a package with a few of the gifts I had planned for the shower. It is supposed to arrive today. One of the gifts is a receiving blanket I made using the Anna Maria Horner voile. Everyone always talks about how buttery soft this fabric is-and they are right. It feels like silk. I understand now why there were so many scarves made with it. Well, I wanted to make something that the baby would use right away with this wonderful fabric. I chose to make a couple of receiving blankets with the voile on one side and AMH Folksy Flannel on the other. I didn’t want to make the blanket too complicated, so I used large pieces from several of the prints. I made them approximately 36 ” by 36″ and rounded the corners. I finished them with a top stitch around the edge and did not do anything to the center (such as any type of quilting).
Here they are:
I also sent along this dining chair cover made with some Sandi Henderson Ginger Blossom from this post. Along with some burpies from this post and a couple of store bought items. I hope this will perk up the new mom to be and hopefully she will look forward to the shower she will be having in GA in mid-May.
