Per Hubby's Request

I was packing an overnight bag the other day  and nonchalantly telling hubby what I was bringing in it for Jade.

I showed him one of the receiving blankets I had made and blogged about in recent months.  Suddenly, he chimed in with "doesn't she have a smaller blanket that is softer as well?"  Huh...didn't think of that hon!  As quilters, you know what happened next;)  The wheels were 'a turning.  Before you know it I was upstairs, in my sewing room Sunday, creating a soft blanket for our girl!



With some "pear" minkee dot and leftover Magenta Cuddle minkee, I pieced the back.  The front is a butterfly print in flannel with a ruffle trim sewn on by moi!  I used Aurifil in Blossom Pink for the top stitching around the entire blanket.



Little girl will be embraced in the softest blankie ever!!!!

*OH and it's been hubby approved! *

XXXX HUGS! XXXX
