modern baby blanket

When I bought these bold prints a while back, I knew I’d use them for a baby boy project… so when I found out Emily, an old roommate of mine, was expecting a little boy this winter, I got started and had a lot of fun doing a quick little project (my first since Ruby made her debut)!  I think he’ll look great snuggled up in it.  Emily and Scott live in St. Louis, so I made it a little thicker for those cold winters, quilted it with uneven/ wonky straight lines and used a satin blanket binding… a first for me.  I used this tutorial for attaching the binding and it worked perfectly! Here are some pictures:

Packed up and ready to go!  Emily & Scott, best wishes as you welcome your little boy into your family! xoxo.
