My kids have always loved collecting bugs and butterflies in jars, bug cages, and any container they could find with holes in it. I still have to laugh when I think of them searching the backyard pulling their red wagon filled with various containers and their nets hanging over their shoulders looking for the next prize find!!!
This quilt was made for a very special friend for her little boy. May he enjoy hours of playing outside, catching bugs, and having a picnic with Mom & Dad!!! My mom did the quilting on this special project making the bug cages and spider webs look so realistic. She even stitched his name and birth date in the border.
Thanks Mom - you do such an awesome job and are always inspiring me!!!
"She makes coverings for her bed ..." Proverbs 31:22What 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!
