I started this little snuggle blankie for my youngest nephew, Ryan, before he was born. And I finished it yesterday. Can you say easily distracted?
I admire the heck out of people who can quilt, but lord knows (and now you do too), that I'm not one of them. Geometry is not my forte, nor is patience, precision, or any level of creative perfectionism. Even still, after 8 months of pecking away at it, you'd think that I could manage a pretty slick little blankie, right?
Yeah... maybe not so much. I hope that it at least holds together for a while. I cobbled it together from leftover fabrics from Olivia's bedroom curtains, a pair of jeans that had been outgrown by my two girls and my niece, and an earth-friendly, anti-microbal bamboo-blend batting.
Clumsily executed or not, I hope that my little Ry-guy likes his blankie. Aunt Chelle loves you, buddy boy. :)
