Handkerchief Quilt

For another friend who is expecting a baby I made a girly girl blanket. The blocks are actually handkerchiefs I found at a store and thought would make a nice quilt. I happened to have the most perfect blue fabric to go along with it and - voila! The top was finished in no time, but finishing it was a little bit more work. For the backing I decided to use an extra soft velour blanket material, which is a lot harder to deal with than regular cotton. But with a lot of help from my mom, it got finished. It's a very soft blankie that will sure be a favorite for years to come!
I didn't realise it was that wrinkly until I saw the photo!

The oh-so-soft backing!
