Wednesday WIP: Finished Baby Blanket & Heritage Quilt

It has taken me two years, but I finally finished my 2 year old’s baby blanket. The plus of making a baby blanket after they are born is finding out what they like. The silky edge is a must for my little guy and I never would have done it before he was born. The down side is that he isn’t a baby anymore, though I know he will still use and love on his blanket.

I am surrounded by men in my life and finding out we were expecting our third boy motivated me to reach out to my female relatives and work on a heritage quilt. So I have contacted, still waiting to hear back from some of them, my aunts, mom, grandma, and sister in law and will be sending each of them fabric to create a quilt block a piece. I will then put them all together in a quilt for me. Muwahaha! Okay it isn’t evil or anything, and I will still have a LOT of work to do. I will be putting a block in between each of my relatives to make a nice, big blanket. Whew. It will be quite the project, so you can all look forward to updates on this blanket throughout the next year or two… I mean if it took me two years to finish a baby blanket, who knows how long it will take me to complete this one, even if my relatives are making half of the top.

I guess time will tell how the heritage quilt goes and how quickly I will get it done. I wish you all well on your current projects great and small!
