Baby Shower Tomorrow

These are great to have on hand for a quick baby shower gift:
Self binding receiving blankets and little ribbon taggie blanket.

2 1/4 yards each, of contrasting flannel will make a matched set of these self binding receiving blankets.  A few months ago, I posted about these fun little blankets.  Here is a tutorial link to Piece n' Quilt if you want to see how they are made.
I visited the local "Mill End Fabrics" and found lots of ribbon pieces in their remnants box. It's also a great way to use up left over minky.  I started with a 14 in. square to make this 12 inches.
I bought an 18 inch remnant of silk for the other side.  So with 60 inch wide silk, I can make 4 of these. 
Here is a good tutorial for a taggie over at I Can Teach My Child.

Love the use of silk with minkie with a tag blanket - just a lot of wonderful texture, so sweet.
