Flannel Receiving Blanket with Knit Binding
Dreaming of Spring, a quilt I made last winter as I 'dreamed' of Spring, recently found a new baby boy to keep warm and cozy. But somehow I felt it needed something else and that 'something else' turned out to be a flannel receiving blanket bound in oh-so-soft knit binding. There was much thought given to the finishing of the flannel receiving blanket from simply serging the edges, to hand-blanket stitching to even a crochet edging. All techniques I've done before. But I wanted this one to be different. So I came up with the idea of a soft knit binding. I've never used knit as binding, and I wanted to share a little of what I did here. The flannel receiving blanket is out of the same flannel used as the backing on the quilt, so it will coordinate well.
Happy Sewing Everyone! :)
