Here is another blanket with mitered corners, this time made by my 17-year-old daughter for her sister, Katie. Katie's baby is due in a just few more weeks, and we are all so excited!
The baby shower was yesterday, and so now I will finally be able to post pictures of some of the baby items I've been knitting and sewing. (I didn't want to spoil the surprise in case Katie reads this blog).
Today, however, this blanket sewn by Ellen is the highlight. When we went shopping for fabric, I was in complete disagreement with Ellen's fabric choices. She was adamant, and we ended up buying the brown plaid flannel and the big polka-dots fabric. Wow, was I ever wrong about the fabric! It's perfect. So manly and unique. Just perfect for Katie, Michael, and their baby boy. I have a feeling this blanket will become their favorite. By the way, I did have to apologize for my misgivings about Ellen's fabric choice. Next time I will trust her. :))))
Sisters. Don't they look alike?!
