Keepsake for Mom

A little while ago Allison gave me Blake's receiving blankets to make into a quilt.  It is a great keepsake for mom and Blake.

I started with a pile of receiving blankets.

Cut them into 10 Inch Squares.  

I also appliquéd some pieces.

I did horizontal stitching for the quilting

On the back I put a Teddy Bear Flannel.


  1. Kim,

    This is a completely precious keepsake. I would the idea of using Blake's baby blankets to make a quilt. My kids are sentimental and love anything having to do with themselves as babies. This is really sweet.

    I'm visiting from the DIY linky party. I would love if you stopped by my blog.

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. I love it! I have a huge stack of receiving blankets from my kids too, I never thought about using them in a quilt.
