Another Happy Friend!

I LOVE making chenille blankets! 
 You all know this. 
 I have a good friend that is expecting a baby any day now.
  In fact I think she was due a few days ago, as my friend said, "She is taking her ladies time". 
 I decided at the last minute to make a chenille blanket for her. 
 I always have one or two basted and ready to sew. 
 So I took the girly one and stitched it up. 
 I LOVE how great it turned out. 
 Love, love, love the dark pinks in this. 
 My tutorial to make one is on my tutorial page if you are interested, or
 for a pieced back, you can find it on the Moda Bake Shop right here.

It was the only finish I can share. 
 I had another one but can't share it just now = )

My friend, Karen, is from Brazil.  
She always calls me Flor (flower) and her son LOVES cats and so do I) 
so I thought this back fabric was purrrrfect!!

I loved that the touch of orange in the backing fabric was picked up in the orange background of the chenille.

I have sooooooooooooo much more to share but I am exhausted so will share more tomorrow.  

Have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend to all my US friends!

I just pieced the back of another baby blanket from your tutorial for a gift this past week. Going to pick up the flannel today. I love your pattern and after this second one I know I will be making a third because youngest daughter is having another baby this next spring. Have a great holiday weekend!
