This was my sew-in project, a birthday gift for a six-year-old little girl. A very spontaneous project, yet every bit of it was hiding in my stash, just waiting to be pulled together into this little quilt. Love when that happens! I used the Warm Wishes pattern, a free download from Quiltmaker.com, and I was super impressed with how fast the top came together.
Every smidgen of the Little Mermaid print was used. The aqua/white polka dot filled in for the last round of blocks, "growing" the quilt from baby-size to kid-size. The borders finished off the teal print, and it took the very last bits of both purples to make the binding. A nearly "scrapless" project!
The backing is a super thick and cozy solid teal flannel. It was purchased by my mom over 20 years ago, and yet it fit my quilt top exactly, without an inch to spare. Simple straight-line crosshatching made the quilting go fast.
All finished (48" x 57"), and sooo cuddly...
Also during our sew-in, someone shared the link to this flannel receiving blanket tutorial video from Missouri Quilt Company:
I couldn't resist giving it a try. These are SO cute, I want to make more and more and more...
