I am linking to Val's Quilting Studio's Tuesday Archives.
This week the theme is receiving blankets.
I posted a tutorial HERE. Use 3 cuts of fabric to make 3 small receiving size quilts, for a new baby.
As an aside, to protect our precious little babies, I want to mention that I use 100% cotton, flannel and batting in any baby quilts I make. It was brought to my attention years ago that if polyesters and other man-made fibers (not natural fibers) get near a heat source, the material melts and sticks to the body. And, unfortunately, I was reminded of a 6-year-old girl I taught in class years ago. Flames started in their camper and a polyester blanket was used to smother the flames, but melted and stuck to her. She suffered severe burns.
Oh thank you for rejuvinating these at TuesdayArchives!! The pattern is ingenious and so quick to make.
