1. this is adorable! definitely worth the time you put into it. I have fun making quilts and blankets for each new grandchild and I”m always on the lookout for something new and unique. Thank you!

    I’m curious, though – do you only stitch the 3 layers of the blanket together around the outside edge? I have trouble with everything shifting and bunching if I don’t quilt or tack them together.

      I serge around the edges which helps to hold all three layers. Also when I sew the circles onto the fabric I’m pretty sure the stitches go through the top layer and the middle layer. If I work really hard at it, I can make it go through the bottom layer too although I don’t think that’s necessary because the middle does get caught. Alternatively, you could leave the batting out and sew through the two layers of flannel.

    So super cute but seems like a lot of work LOL 🙂
    My “OCD” is do the raised felt circles lend to a bumpy “uncomfy” blanket for baby?
    The first time I scrolled down this article (before reading it), I just assumed you were amusing yourself and distinguishing your circle patterns by drawing on them 🙂
    Very nicely done! (the drawings as well as the blanket LOL)

      I don’t think they’re uncomfortable. I gave a friend a blanket like this two years ago, and her little guy still uses it.
      Nothing in our home is safe from Ezra’s embellishments. 🙂
