Simple Baby Blankets

More projects to share!  When I got my hands on Sarah Jane's new line, Out to Sea, my brain went crazy.  I mean nuts.  Combine that with my brain being on baby baby baby I wanted to make several blankets for my sweet baby girl.  


As I was thinking and looking for inspiration I had several styles of receiving-type baby blankets that I wanted to make for her.  Trims, prairie points, rounded corners and mitered corner...even a super simple patchwork quilt.  


Ultimately I decided to make them a pattern!  Four different styles, with two different sizes to make each one.  I've got them backed in minky and flannel.  I am so pleased with how they turned out!  The patchwork map blanket and mitered corners blanket are car seat size, perfect for new baby (30" x 30").  The Prairie Points blanket and sweet mermaids with the ruffle trim (isn't it fabulous?? I love that trim, Joanns!) are crib size, 35" x 40".



There you have it!  This baby girl has more stuff than anyone else in our house I think!  She is going to be so fancy everywhere she goes :)

I love all of the unapologetic pink. :) Only one of my friends has had a baby girl so far, and she's definitely not a "pink" type of mama! If I ever have babies and one is a girl, you can bet she'll get all this girlie goodness. :) I especially love the map quilt! It's neat to have the contrast of something antique and usually somewhat masculine in such a girlie color.
