I am very proud of this even though it is simple.  Mostly I have grand plans for quilts followed by having lots of quilt blocks half sewn together in a basket somewhere.  This one really got done!  It measures about 36x36 (sort of stroller sized) and is a collection of lovely flannels.  It was sort of a pain to sew due to the flannel and its thickness but turned out really soft and nice in the end.

Excellent! I dig the stripe on the back using the fabric patterns from the front.

Thanks everyone.  The success here has inspired me to pull out an old project and finally finish it.  It was supposed to be done for my son's birth... now he's almost 2.  Oh well, they can't use blankets when they're babies anyway Smiley
