My sister Whitney came up with an idea for a baby blanket a few years back. She loves to just take a piece of cute fabric, pair it with minky and then quilt it together. No batting or anything in between. Its the perfect weight and size to bundle a newborn. It took me awhile to get use to the idea of quilting something without batting. The quilt doesn't always lay perfectly flat once its quilted, but it does have a good weight to it. Here is one of my latest creations using this method.
Fabric is Wonderland by MoMo - its Moda of course.
Another baby blanket project I recently worked on was one made by Moda's presewn patchwork fabric. I LOVE this fabric. I try to buy a yard or two everytime I see it. Its fabric squares already sewn together, so the work is done for you. I've added borders to the fabric in the past, but I also just like to pair it with minky and quilt it. Makes a great throw or little baby quilt. This one is done, just needs to be bound.

One last baby blanket I want to start. My son Jake is obsessed with robots. I found this fabric. Trying to think of something cute to do with it. Any ideas?
Take me to your leader.....
