Baby Gifts

This is the year for babies at work.  We've already had 1 adoption and 3 births (1 set of twins).  This week there's another shower coming up for 4 more expected late May through early July. Back in February I purchased ribbon balnket kits to make for this group, and got them sewn up this past week.  They are super soft minky fabric on one side and flannel on the other, with a layer of batting in between. The colorful ribbons provide additional texture and things to grab onto. They are about 13" square.  The ribbons are cut to 5" and stitched to the flannel/batting layers before sandwiching with the minky.  Kudos to Quilting Adventures quilt shop in Richmond for this cute pattern/kit.

The babies receiving these are 3 boys and 1 girl.  The strawberries, of course, are for the girl; the flannel side is green.  The navy with large dots has an Eric Carle dotted flannel on the back side.  The dots with white backgrounds have a navy and an orange flannel on the reverse sides. All washed and ready to gift!
