Early last week I got a new niece. She's totally adorable by the way. I wanted to make her something so I decided on a light weight patchwork baby blanket. Similar to the ones I made my own kids when they were babies. I left out the batting and made the back flannel. It's a cozy blanket for the warmer months without the bulk of a regular quilt. Although I adore quilting I find most traditional quilting patterns too tedious. I appreciate when others do them, but I just don't have the patience for them. I prefer very basic patchwork and large motifs. This large motif pattern is FIERCE! I adore it and I will definitely use it again.
Greenleaf loved holding her new cousin.
