White Wednesday - Baby Blankets

Three Baby Blankets.  The fabric is plisse which is perfect for a summer baby.
These blankets are made by a friends Mother (Mrs. G).  She loves to crochet and she makes them faster than anything I have ever seen. Well, it seems that way to me because I am slower than anything you have ever seen. 

 She stitches them as she watches TV. 

She embroiders a Rosebud on each corner of the blanket.

My sewing friends crochet but if they ever would sell one of their blankets, I think it would cost a million dollars!

I especially like the pink because it's so girly!

She has a million color combinations.
But I like the classic White fabric with Pink, Blue or White.

I especially like the blue trim because I love the blue and white combination.

And I especially like the white because it looks so pure.  

 I buy them from her to sell in my  Web Shop.
And in the winter she makes them out of flannel.  

And this is my White Wednesday with Faded Charm today!

Happy Stitching To You!

How perfect! I love all of them. I've crocheted on flannel but only with the pre-punched holes. Do you know if she marks the place for each stitch or if she's just talented that way? My stitches would be wandering all over the place. These are beautiful!

Are there instructions on how to make these anywhere? They are so sweet!
