So this is my first blanket....I intended to actually quilt it but instead opted to add a fleece back and leave out the batting.  It's made out of the special outfits from my sons first year of life, the ones that have meaning/memories attached.  It's not perfect, but it was fun to make and something I'll treasure.



The back is a deep red, almost burgundy.

Great job! I make most of my t-shirt quilts without the batting and I use fleece blankets as the backing (which you can get fairly cheap...mervyn's had a sale about a month ago and my aunt picked several up for me at $1 a piece. I usually get them at $3 each). My mom has dubbed them 'quilt throws'. They're quilted, but they're light, like a throw. And they're uberwarm!

This is a very cute idea, and well exicuted. I would love to make one but I could never bring myself to cut those up.

That is so cute!  I really thought about doing something like that for my kids.  No clue how I'd start it, but I like the idea!

I *love* this! We are saving everything for future rugrats and then for a quilt like this. A little boutique near me makes them out of  your old baby clothes for about $150. Yours is far superior!!! So cute!

Wonderful job! I might have to try something like that with some of my grandson's clothes. He's sure outgrowing them fast enough! Grin
