Homemade Christmas (Ribbon Blankie)

Another Christmas present made from scraps! This is a ribbon blankie for my new niece (not the Gator.) The pink edging and the satin are from a quilt I made two years ago and probably from Joann’s; the flannel is Hobby Lobby and from the Butterfly Baby quilt. The un-pictured backside is the same pink pre-quilted as the previous couple of crayon rolls.

Instead of pinning and worrying about the pins inside while turning the blankie, I pinned and sewed all the ribbons to the backside first. Then I sandwiched everything and sewed the sides together. I think this gives an extra bit of hold to the ribbons, with two sets of stitches holding it in. And it eliminates the worry of stabbing yourself with a pin while turning.

And yes, I know that’s not the most perfect of intersections, despite using the sew-then-slice quarter square triangle method. I’m going with satin is way hard to sew with. Yep, blaming the fabric.
