Becca’s baby blanket part 2

I finished Becca’s baby blanket this morning – not too shabby for a 2 day project!

This is the whole thing laid out – I love the ric rac inset in the border, I have seen this technique used before, but this was my first try at it!
The back is a simple yellow flannel with no batting as an inner layer, this makes the blanket cuddly but not bulky. I top stitched along all the seams and did some extra stitching to beef up the border.
I wanted the corners to be nice and tidy, and didn’t like the look of the ric rac crossing, so I just added little fabric corners which I think gave a clean look.
I like how in this last picture you can see the sun shining through the lacy ric rac edge, this blanket is so sunny, and all I need to do now is give it a good wash and then mail it off to my big sister!

    The ric rac is the perfect trim for this beautifully bright baby blanket! So clever with the peek a boo aspect. Love the combination of colors. You did a great job on this future family heirloom.

    This looks terrific! It’s the sort of thing a room would be designed around on Sarah’s House!
