So, here's the deal. My best friend is having a baby in December. So, since I'm off work for the summer, I started making the afghan now. It's just granny squares, so it's going to be kind of airy. What I was thinking about doing after the afghan itself is finished, somehow using pieces of salvaged baby blankets to kind of... quilt on one side?  Shocked

I've never seen it done before, but in my mind it's kind of cool.
Any suggestions, help, comments?

I have had this idea before, and I think it's fantastic.  I have no idea how it could be done, seeing as I don't sew at all, but I think it would be the coolest blanket/afgan/quit ever.  Good luck, and let us know how it goes!

Try a blanket stitch around the outside to join the two pieces together and then tie knots evenly throughout the blanket on the baby blanket side.  The same way the quilts are tied together, snip the threads close after knotting.

I hope this will help.


If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

Thanks for the suggestion.
