"She makes coverings for her bed ..." Proverbs 31:22
What is Nita Blankie?

I started making these Blankies for my friends about ten years ago, and they have always been a delightful and welcomed gift. My daughter's name, Allyson, is spelled with a 'y' and it's next to impossible to find anything personalized for her. The Blankie was the perfect answer and such a special keepsake.

The Blankies are embroidered with a name and a small design on the fleece side and Minkee or some other type of plush fabric for the backing. Ribbon loops are spaced around the outer edge, giving a baby something to play with or a loop to clip to a stroller so they won't fall off.

Most Blankies are approximately 30" x 30", but as each Blankie is unique, it may vary a few inches either way. You can choose the two colors YOU need for that special gift, perhaps to match the nursery. Email me at rdyefam@yahoo.com and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!

Lonesome Pine

These two little "generic" baby blankies are for a sweet lady in Northwest Arkansas that has the cutest quilt shop. It is called Lonesome Pine Quilts and has a great variety of fabrics and quilting supplies along with many other things.   My husband is a fan of the shop too - - I am sure it has nothing to do with the antique truck and big screen TV she has in the shop!! 

If you want to check out her website it is www.lonesomepinequilts.com - - I can't wait to go back to Arkansas and see all the new fabrics she has!!! Thanks so much Judy for displaying these in your shop!!!
