self binding mitered corner receiving blankets


I just made a little light receiving blanket for a cute gal that lives a few blocks away that had a sweet baby boy a week or so ago. I have not made one of these in awhile, but they are so darling so I knew I wanted to make one. The first time I learned this technique, it was from my neighbor, Debbie. She is an amazing seamstress and just happens to be the USU Extension agent for the county. I totally lucked out on neighbors, not only can she answer almost any question I have, (or at least know where to look for the answer) she is a great friend. I love ya Debbie! Anyway, here is the link to her pattern for these blankets. There are great pictures and she explains it so great. You can not mess up with these instructions.


My friend Natalia who owns and operates piecenquilt.com has a super fun blog and she also has a tutorial for these blankets on her blog. Check it out. I have been visiting there for the past week or so looking at her tutorial. She uses some super fun fabric and adds a few embellishments.

SELF-binding????? really??? That's the part I hate the most. I'll have to look into those.

I learned how to make these at Homemaking...oh, sorry, Enrichment night....anyway, I'm a beginner at this whole sewing thing, and I found these to be so easy! Just follow the directions, and you'll end up with a very nice blanket. I put quilt batting in a couple of mine, and they end up so soft and cuddly. "So easy a ..... can do it." Smile!

How cute! I might actually have to try these. One of the AWESOME ladies in our branch is going to help me make our curtains--she claims it's easy. I think that this will have to be my second project once I figure out how to sew a straight line--lol.
