Kawaii baby blanket

 
 
I began this baby quilt when my friend's baby was still in-utero and she didn't know the sex. After I had cut about a dozen 4.5" squares, little Daniel was born, two weeks early.




 
So I added a little more blue/teal than I had originally planned, 


A little label for the little man and a lemon brushed cotton backing, it looks a little bright here, 


I really adore Kokka fabric - it is so Kawaii!
 

(according to Wikipedia - Kawaii (かわいい [kaw͍aiꜜi], "lovable", "cute", or "adorable")


completed with my new love of machine binding for those times I'm in a hurry
 


 
 

I made this blanket to suit a pram or bassinet. We are still having some really warm days here and it is quite light but with the brushed cotton backing it remains cosy and warm when required.
 
Happy Stitching
Susie
