Starting small - like baby quilts - is a good way to ease your way into this world of crafts when you are learning how to quilt. Small projects like baby blankets and mug rugs aren't just great places to begin your quilting adventures, either.

have my flannel remnants and can't wait to try this! #BESTIDEAEVER

Please..Never leave the threads hanging off the edges. These could get wrapped around baby's finger and cut off circulation in that precious little digit. Have seen it happen.

Judyschooler: Good point! You never know what those little fingers will get in to. I do a lot of sewing for little ones and it never hurts to be too careful.

Love it!
