Hi Everyone:

I don't usually get to share pics since I don't have a dig camera  Roll Eyes, but I gave this baby blanket to a good friend for her baby shower and someone kindly took a few pics for me.  Its not perfect but hopefully baby won't mind. Smiley

The pattern is a snowball block, the whole thing is 100% cotton flannel and for that reason I didn't put any batting in since I figured it would be warm enough on its own.  The colours are really intense, which doesn't show up terribly well in the pics, but I think the closeup picture gives you a better idea of the colours.  I knew their baby room was lavender and I wanted it to match somewhat.  My favourite part, I think, is the backing fabric.  Smiley

Yay! I finished something quilty! Smiley  It's very nice to do something small and quick, considering my current "real" quilt project I started 3 years ago...  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!
