With these blankets I made the border for the striped one and bordered the squares and assembled the other one. My sweet friend Jean C. did most of the work on both, by making the bodies of the blankets and then asked if I would finish them for her. That's a no-brainer for me. I find things like that to be very relaxing and I love playing without a pattern. The striped blanket is approximatley 24 inches square and the blue and white one is 21 by 24 inches.
They'll both be going to the Cornell NICU.
This was made at the request of my friend Mary. She and her husband are going to be grandparents for the first time. A little girl...so lilac just had to be part of what is a very neutral baby blanket ;>)
The pattern is called a Baby 9 Patch, and I made the squares 4 inches instead of the 2 1/4 which is what the original pattern on
calls for. The blanket is 35 inches square.
