Baby boy receiving blankets

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. BabyQuilts_SideOn

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:

Baby blankets underway, first top complete

This is a quick post to share the first top of 3 baby receiving blankets, I plan to make this weekend.

Fabric: Kona Sunset Charm Pack (can you use 1 charm pack for two tops, Purchased at Fat Quarter Shop)
Sashing: Kona White Jelly Roll
Size: 23″ x 27 1/2″

I love the colors in the Kona Sunset and Kona Sunrise sets. I will definitely be using more of these in the near future.


Backing will be minky dimple dots that I purchased from Hawthorne Threads.

Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday. Hope you all have a good weekend, I am going back to sewing these blankets 🙂
