Minky Baby Blanket Simplified

I think I called it the perfect baby blanket. Well, I love them just as much now as I did in the beginning. Knowing there were a few babies due to arrive in our crazy month of August I spent a day and made these 3 blankets. I love how quickly they sew up and cruised through them until it was time for the binding. And even though I had really cute coordinating fabric picked out for the binding I just couldn’t talk myself into going through all the work for the binding. So I cheated. Fold it over once. Then fold again and sew. A Sewing Journal - A Sewing Journal - Quick Baby Shower Quilt How-To.

Original Paintbox Blocks Tutorial

My quilt used 64 blocks -- 32 sets of two. Each block is 6.5" once sewn (7" before). For each set of two, you'll need approximately 9" x 15" of a solid fabric and a coordinating print. (I used Kona cotton for my solids.) Besides standard rotary-cutting tools, no special tools are needed. Stack your fabrics on top of one another for cutting. Start with the pieces you cut from the 3" strip, pairing the smaller printed strips with the solid square and the smaller solid strips with the printed square.

Sew the strips to opposite sides of the squares as shown, pressing seams open. Next, take one of the coordinating narrow 9" strips and one of the wide strips. Press seams open. Repeat the last few steps on your second block. Now, you're going to add a second set of strips to your block, but this time it will be important to pay attention to which sides are being paired with narrow and wide strips.

Note from Weeks: Both my husband and daughter are restless sorts.

calming the senses with weighted blankets « Craft Nectar

When our daughter was little and we went to a restaurant, Bill would take her out to run up and down the sidewalk while I paid the bill so she wouldn’t start squirming at the table. Those kids who kick the back of your seat on planes have the same issue. Therapists refer to them as “sensory seeking.” One therapist explained to me that the way I would feel if I sat in a car for ten hours straight is how she feels after sitting for one hour. Bill has talked for years about finding a way to create a heavy blanket that would calm his and our daughter’s restless muscles.

Like me, our daughter is frequently restless and, at the end of the day, often asks for a heavy quilt on her legs or for a deep-muscle massage. Mirror Mirror Quilt Pattern - Beginner Quilt Pattern.
