Self Binding Receiving Blanket..
I found the tutorial on youtube. It is called "the self binding baby quilt (receiving blanket). It was so easy and it makes great mitered corners. And for a finishing touch you get to use one of your machine's embroidery stitches that you hardly ever apply to anything, another plus.
I also had enough fabric to make four matching burp cloth's in the same way. The cream piece is a 30 inch square and the paisley is 40 inch. I just used what was left for the burp cloths, they are kinda oblong but a good size for use.
Try it, its way easy and its a fun way to make a quick baby shower gift! And have a great Thursday!
