Quilt Made from Receiving Blankets

This is considered a rag quilt that can either be made from used receiving blankets or squares of flannel fabric.  I cut the squares in equal sizes, I think mine were 5″ squares.  Then I sewed two squares backsides together about 1/2″ in from edges.  You can either put two like blocks together or put one color on the back of each block so the back of the quilt will be a solid color.  Next lay out the blocks to the desired layout.  Sew the blocks together on that sewn line leaving the raw edges exposed on the front of the quilt. 

Jungle Themed Nursery Blanket

This was a quilt idea from Joann’s.  You buy the panel for the Jungle Babies fabric book and then there was a Joann’s idea free pattern showing how to make a quilt out of the book panel.  There was coordinating fabric for the borders and backing and instructions that were easy to follow.  You can put a tube on the back if you want to hang the quilt for a wall hanging or just use as a quilt.
