I wanted a way to remember the receiving blankets that I used to swaddle my boys (1 and 4 now), so I converted them to a rag quilt. This is my first ever quilt. Thanks for looking!

That's so sweet and sentimental!  Fabulous idea!  And it still looks super soft and cuddly...   Smiley

nice job! i have done a rag quilt in flannel and i've seen them done in denim, but i never thought of something so sentimental like that...so creative!

rag quilts are a nice way to start...my first *complete* quilt was a rag quilt, too.  Smiley

that is an awesome idea! the family I nany for has sooo many receiving blankets, this would be an awesome idea of how to reuse them. they could probably even make one for each of their 2 kids.
