my very FIRST self binding receiving blanket and jelly roll race xo



my very first self binding receiving blanket...great tutorial here at @missouri star quilt company
the special  mitered corner works so well and i love the decorative stitching ...i am definitely in baby mode with our first grandchild due in may xo

and i picked these blues from my stash to make my first jelly roll race quilt at my featherweight class at keepsake last week

it finished up ok considering i DID NOT  follow the simple rules...i used smaller scraps of fabric when  it is important to use the full wof ~ and it is important to cut 18" off your first strip ... that is why a  jelly roll is perfect...i also sewed mine into a tube by accident so a seam ripper was involved... great tutorial the proper way here missouri star quilt company

i found this sweet elephant flannel for the back.. i am going to finish it up along with a few other baby boy quilts real soon
    happy sunday xo pam
