I am expecting some new arrivals in the family and I like to give a baby blanket to the new mom. It is sort of my thing. At this time I know we are expecting two new arrivals and this will be an easy blanket to get done really quickly. Thanks for the free pattern.

This baby blanket is easy to make as the blocks used are huge and not as tedious to make compared to the smaller granny squares. This will also look great when done in a combination of colors. Maybe 9 blocks, 9 colors. Cool. White is also a stunning option. Wow.

I have been looking for a baby blanket pattern and I really like this one. The blocks work up to 12 x 12 so the blanket will be completed in little to no time. This could easily be make into a larger afghan just by making more motifs. The edging on this one really gives it a tailored look.
