Vintage Baby Blanket
I love fabric. I may have a slight hoarding problem when it comes to fabric. My favorite fabric (at least for right now) is all of the 1930’s and 1940 replicas. There is something so beautiful about it. The pattern in these fabrics are colorful and simple. I also love blankets. This Vintage Baby Blanket is one of my favorite patterns. (Click Here to get your own copy of this adorable pattern) It was so easy to put together and since I already had a jellyroll of my 30’s and 40’s replica it didn’t take much more fabric to put it together. I used a simple white top and a replica for my backing.
This blanket is just the perfect size for a crib. It measures approximately 42″ x 42″. Now I know that it looks like a ton of work, but it really isn’t. It does take some preparation time but once you start sewing I feel like you move right along. One of the things I love about this blanket is that once you are done sewing the blocks onto the top of the quilt you are finished! (With the exception of binding.)
Since you sew the blocks right on top of the white top the edges of each block will fray slightly. It looks and feels so soft. This vintage baby blanket is one of my favorites for sure. I am toying with the idea of making it a twin size blanket for my little girl. We will see! Let me know what you think of this adorable blanket and if you try the pattern yourself. Happy sewing!
