Quilted Baby Blanket

I have recently been invited to a few baby showers and wanted to make something memorable and inexpensive so I immediately turned to my sewing machine!

My mother had this adorable Precious Moments pre-quilted  baby material and I decided to turn it into a baby quilt. All I had to purchase was some satin blanket binding and matching thread. Thankfully I also had my JoAnn's coupons handy!

Before

Before this project I had never sewn binding onto a blanket, so I did a quick Google search a found a YouTube video about "How to sew satin binding on a blanket" which I found to be very helpful! In total the project cost me under $10 and took about 30 minutes. SCORE!
