Baby Blankets

As promised, I am sharing with you a couple of the baby blankets I have made for some of my friends here in LA. Like I said, we have about 1 to 2 babies born into our ward each month so I have been very busy making blankets and unfortunately have not been able to take pictures of each and every one that I make, but at least I got some pictures of my favorites so far.

This one was for little baby Beck and I absolutely love the way it came out!
I think this one that I made for little baby Blackburn has probably been my favorite so far and I think it turned out great! I was afraid that the polka dot theme was going to be a little much (the light pink fabric is even polka dot!) but I love the finished product. :)

In all the blankets only take me about 6-7 hours to make a piece with the cutting taking the most time! Oh, how I love my rotary cutter and self-healing mat. My squares are measured at 5.5 inches and the rows are 7x7 to make the full quilt.

Well, I have my fabric picked out for the next few blankets that I'm going to make, here's hoping that I get to actually make one for me in the future!

REALLY nice, Jayna. You have good taste in fabric and pattern, and you've executed the projects beautifully. I'll let you know when we have another baby on the way! ;)
