A friend commissioned me to make 2 more baby quilts for her dear friend who is expecting twin girls in January. This time I FINALLY figured out how to do that silky blanket binding without it slipping all around and getting bunchy. This was a major accomplishment for me - it only took making 4 blankets to get it right! She wanted pink and brown, but she didn't want the blankets to be identical.
Using the pink and brown color scheme, I made these two blankets with the same pattern, but opposite colors. I used the same pink and brown butterfly fabric to tie them together. Backed with the softest minky fabric, I hope these blankets will be treasured for years by their soon-to-be owners!
