That looks lovely. (I love making baby blankets!) This is probably a stupid question, but I assume you appliqued on the crocheted angel after making the rest?

That blanket is very pretty and sweet. My youngest son was a preemie and I'm telling you those blankets are very welcome  to a new mom with a preemie. Great work!

Our youngest was only two weeks early and sooo tiny, I can only imagine the parents with smaller.
I am currently working to send 40 tiny preemie hats and 40 tiny pairs of booties to our local NICU.  I started a craft along for it here and on ravelry.
