I made this out of the crap load of flannel receiving blankets I had left over from the birth of ds. It is very simple...but super soft Smiley The only problem is now, finding someone that I can pass it down too. Smiley

It's adorable! Is the back pieced, too?

I'd keep it as a memory quilt of sorts, and for couch-cuddling your tot on rainy days.

Unfortunatley, the back is just plain blue flannel. I basically cut enough squares for two small quilt tops - one which was given away already...

But I am thinking I acutally *may* keep it... Smiley Smiley

That's a great idea! I wish I would have thought of that with my kids' old receiving blankets (but I'll definately be saving our newest's blankets now).

You could put the blanket away and save it for grandkids (if you're thinking really far ahead).

If the blankets are new you can give it to your local Project Linus chapter.

It looks like a wonderfully snuggly blanket!

That looks like an awesome blanket to keep for years!  I see it being used for many things: snuggling on cold winter days, picnics in the summer, car rides, camping trips, cartoon watching on a Saturday morning, etc.  Smiley

Seal it in plastic and keep it for your first grandchild!

The first quilt I made is being kept like this.  I pieced it and my mother-in-law hand quilted it.

What a great idea!  I have a ton of receiving blankets from when my son was born and was just wondering what I could do with them.  Thanks. Smiley
