I've enjoyed making some receiving blankets with a more feminine feel. I've loved the birdie craze -- these little trees and birdies against the pale pink background of this soft flannel fabric are so cute...

I used the same technique that I used in my tutorial to tuck the ric rac between the outside seams and tied this receiving blanket with a double strand of embroidery floss to keep the front and back fabrics from separating.
These are two of five receiving blankets I'll be making in the next couple of days. It feels so good to be able to relax at my sewing machine with a few quick projects!
