Custom baby blanket made using a late brother's thermal receiving blankets

My client sent me these receiving blankets which belonged to her late brother. She was expecting a baby and wanted me to incorporate the blankets in a new blanket. We worked through various ideas, but she settled on a basic patchwork design. She also requested that the blanket be hand tied with white yarn and bound with a wide satin binding. The backing is a very fluffy sherpa minky fleece.

The result is a dreamy blanket that is full of special memories.

I love the classic feel the hand-tied quilting adds to the blanket.
