One of Ella’s teachers is expecting a new baby boy, and has a 2 year old little girl at home. When I learned this I started thinking about what I could do/make for the new babe! Unfortunately, I’ve had zero time for extra quilt projects, so I put it on the back burner in my mind.
Then I received this amazing cut of fleece from Valori Wells, it is so soft and snuggly! In the end, we decided to make a special blanket for the big sister, from Ella, who is our big sister.
Quick instructions: Square up your fleece, buy satin binding, pin in place as you go, and stitch! A walking foot probably would help with the creeping nature of the satin, but it’s a sweet little fast blanket.
Ella was able to give the blanket to the soon-to-be big sister, at school (apparently she came for the art lesson) and it was a well received gift! I’m praying that her baby makes an entrance soon!
