Easy Holiday Blanket
Several years ago a stumbled upon this super easy quilt idea posted on the Moda Bake Shop. At that time I made two of these blankets with holiday fabric for my best friends little one's. Now that my bff had another little one I knew I needed to make a third.
This was a very quick sew. Basically I cut the same sized circles out of the fabric and batting (I went with 8 1/2" circles). Then I stacked a circle of batting, a fabric circle right side up, and then a second fabric circle right side down. I made sure all edges aligned and then sewed around the circle using a 1/4" seam allowance. I then cut a 1 1/2" slit about 1/2" down from one side of the circle of the top layer of fabric. (be careful not to cut into the bottom layer of fabric). With the cut made I turned the circle right sides out.
After I had all the circles sewn and turned inside out I then sewed them together by rows first, and then completed the quilt. I then pulled each flap down and sewed around the curves to finish the quilt.
