Fancy Schmancy Receiving Blankets

My future sister-in-law's sister had a baby, so I really wanted to make some personalized things for her. It is fun making stuff for children because there are so many things that you can make. I added some personal touches to these small receiving blankets. Now, I can get them out in the mail!

My First Attempt

I finished my first disappearing nine patch quilt...finally. I had the top done for awhile, but didn't really feel like putting the backing together to get ready for quilting. Now that it is done, I'm very proud of it. This is the largest quilt I have made. It measures 84" x 81". It has soft minky backing, which makes this quilt very heavy and very warm.

(My husband was gracious enough to hold this heavy beaut up while having to stand on the ottoman.)

(The warm soft minky back)

(Rolled up all nice and yummy.)

I'm happy with the results of this project, but this quilt is in need of a name. Any ideas out there?

I am also excited to get working on new projects now that this one is done!
