If you wish, you can applique a bit of lace or a doily or a bit of fabric onto one square side of the blanket. Place the two squares right sides facing.
Place a 20 X 20 inch square of batting on top of the wrong side of one of the fabric squares.
Pin the squares together, stitch around the perimeter through all three layers. Leave a 4 inch opening at one end for turning right side out.
Turn the quilt right side out and stitch opening closed.
Now for the quilting.
I cut some 4 inch lengths of yarn and stitched several evenly spaced knots through all layers of the quilt.
Double knot to secure.
These little ties keep the batting in place as well as adding a little detail.
And now these gifts are in her parent's hands.
A bit of handmade happiness for a sweet new girl and her loving parents.
