This weekend was very productive. I managed to get all three receiving blankets finished. They are gifts for my colleagues, each has a new baby boy. I love how they turned out, the colors are fantastic.
I have decided, I am not a huge fan of the minky dimple dot – lots of vacuuming needs to be done to remove all the fluff of my floor. Each of the quilts have minimal quilting, just some simple lines to hold everything in place. The final details for each quilt:
Left Quilt + Right Quilt
Fabric: Kona Sunset Charm Pack,
Sashing: Kona White Jelly Roll
Backing: Minky Dimple Dot
Size: 23″ x 27″
Fabric: Small Half Moon Modern Zig Zags, Moda Fabrics

What did you all get done this weekend? Anything fun?
Your quilts are all fantastic and bright and fresh. Love them.
These are such cute little quilts! I love the size.
The size makes it a nice quick project. Each one probably takes about two hours and you get a great finish !!
I love these!!! Perfect!
I am so happy you like them :-).
These are great. I’m sure the recipients will love them. Aside from the mess, how was it sewing with the minky?
Not bad, I just pinned every 2 inches and sewed with the cotton side up and it went smoothly.
WOW! Super inspiring! Thank you SO much for sharing. What a lovely color rush! Great work. Oh and I agree on the Minky….not a fan…..
Thank you. All the colors worked out so well. Unfortunately, I have 9 -12 yards of it in various colors. Looks like I will be making a lot more baby blankets to use it up 😉
They all look great, so bright and fresh!
Love those little blankets! The colors are so fun.
Lucky babes! What a great welcome.
I love the bright colors! I’m sure those baby boys will love them, too.
