Patchwork Baby Blanket

My niece’s first baby will be born soon.
Amongst other gifts I made them this double sided patchwork baby blanket.

It is made up of 9 by 9 squares of 10x10cm assorted cotton fabrics on both sides and there is a layer of fiberfill in between.
I attached the front and back of all corners with little stitches by hand, so you could by a stretch call it a quilt, I guess.

I made a similar one about three years ago that you might have seen on the old site.

I hope you like it.

My niece loved the gifts I made for her.
She calls this a play mat, which is fine by me too.
Her little baby boy (born on the 16th) is adorable!
(I only saw pictures. Not only do we have this pandemic, but we live far apart.)

I only saw this just now, but it’s really cute! My favourite fabric is the orange one. I’m glad your niece loved it. Congrats on becoming a greataunt! It’s always nice to have little ones in the family.

Thank you!
Yes, it is wonderful to have a baby in the family!
My brother is so happy to be a first time granddad. He finally got to visit and hold the baby.
They live in Friesland (in the north part of the Netherlands) and I live in Belgium, so I volunteered to be a long-distance spare-grandma.
