a blanket for baby Dylan

A few months ago, a very good friend of mine gave birth to her second baby boy.

I wanted to give baby something handmade. I decided on a blanket. His nursery is painted a beautiful pale blue with one bright orange wall that gives it a real punch of colour.
There are large vinyl polka dots on the wall above the crib that make it so much fun. I wish I had a picture to show you because it's really well done.

I lined the back with the softest cream-coloured flannel and quilted it by hand.

The pattern for the quilt can be found in this book.
My friend's tastes are quite contemporary so I had a lot of fun choosing the fabrics for this project. I used much bolder fabrics than in the book.
I'll pop it in the mail today. It's a little late but I hope mom and baby like it just the same.

  4. That is so cute! I've done my share of sewing (though not lately!) but never had the patience for quilts. btw, I'd love for you to link up at my Tuesday's Nursery hop - and if you have more decor items you've done, you're more than welcome to link those. Enjoy your weekend!
