A friend of mine had a baby girl on New Year's day on the Big Island of Hawaii. It's her first girl after two boys and I was so excited when I found out she was having a girl. Girls are so much (more) fun to sew for.
Because Baby lives in Hawaii, I didn't want to use my standard minkee on the back of the blanket, so used flannel.
Anna Maria Horner is one of my favorite designers and bloggers. Years ago she had a tutorial on how to hand stitch a quilt or blanket without having knots or ends show on either side. I've used that technique on numerous blankets and love tracing the designs that are already on the fabric.
