Congratulations to the winners of the Aurifil thread giveaway—MomRy2Sis, YankeeQuilter, and Allison C. I hope you will enjoy the thread! I can't believe the weekend is nearly over! It was a quiet evening here at Ashton House, the perfect one to catch up on some quick and easy baby blankets for two of my friends who recently had baby girls. I've made many a baby girl blanket with this wonderful flannel, which is a sweet blend of gray, blush pink, and watermelon pink. Some quick top-stitching makes fast work of them. Sometimes you need some simple sewing projects to relax between the others!

The final touch was adding the handmade label. I love this one in particular because it is one of my favorite colors and includes care instructions. I've packaged up the blankets and they're ready to ship to their new homes tomorrow. Hope you had a good evening, too!


  1. That is the cutest fabric!!!! I enjoy making baby blankets for friends who are having babies, too.

  2. The little blanket is so cute, I love the animals. Congratulations to all the winners, I'm sure they will enjoy those lovely threads!

  3. Cute, cute fabric! It is nice to have an easy project in between those others that take lots of thought!

  4. Great idea and you are right sometimes simple is just right!
