"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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!
Chevron is becoming such a popular print that I have been using in some of my quilting projects. When I found this cuddly gray chevron I just couldn't resist. It is a special order, but still very reasonable to add to a baby blankie! Thinking gray and yellow are one my new favorite color combinations!!
It is hard to celebrate the 4th of July without stopping to thank all those who have served our country through the years so that we may enjoy the freedoms of our everyday life. This was a quilt I did for my father-in-law in honor of his time he served our country during the Vietnam war along with many other brave men!
