Basic Baby Blanket

We at Mckay Manor Musers love a simple project with a purpose. Nothing fulfills those requirements like a baby blanket. You can easily start and finish a sweet little baby blanket in a matter of hours. Plus, you have an excuse to buy absolutely adorable fabrics that you may not have a use for otherwise. (As though we really need an excuse to buy more fabric.) This downloadable pattern will walk you through the steps of making a 30″ x 40″ baby blanket with a cotton binding. This blanket is incredibly customizable. Simply pick three of your favorite fabrics for the front, back, and binding. Then, add some fun quilting and a happy little applique. We have even included a few of our favorite painter’s tape quilting designs.
