Can you tell that our expected grand baby is a...........GIRL?
I have my work cut out for me! I don't think that this little girl will want for anything.....do you?
I bought 1 1/4 yd of flannel and trimmed it into a square. I also bought 5 yd of ric-rac, of which I only used 4 yds. I trimmed off the corners and pressed it under 1/3 in., then I pressed it under again. I applied the ric-rac with 2 rows of stitching.
I think it turned out so soft and cuddly! I can just imagine swaddling a new born in this pretty modern receiving blanket! It measures 39in square and is 100% cotton flannel.
All in all....I am a very excited grandmother-to-be!!

How exciting to have a granddaughter on the way!
This blanket is great! I love the rick-rack trim!
Congratulations! The blanket is beautiful. I've got a granddaughter due in 16 days and I dare say she's going to be over-indulged with grandma-made goodies as well.
Spoil your grand-baby...you......no... really! How wonderful for you all! She will be one very spoilt li'l baby....but then that's how it should be. Love your receiving blanket! Gorgeous fabric and ric rac!!
Your receiving blanket is gorgeous! Your little soon to be born grandaughter is very lucky :)
