Baby Blanket

Baby blanket measuring approx. 35 x 30 inches for a little girl due later in the year. I came across some lovely images on flickr of zig zag quilts so made up the top using a zig zag pattern from these green, pink and cream cottons and then lined and backed with a soft pink flannel. Warm enough for a blanket but still a little padded if being used on the floor.

I got to test drive my walking foot on it's first whole project and while it only had to feed the cotton and 2x layers of flannel so not too thick, it came out beautifully. Can't wait to try it on an actual quilt.

I love the way that you joined up all the squares to form a zig zag. What a fab idea!
