I just made a simple receiving blanket for Baby Law. . . I'll take it to the hospital with me if I remember! I've been so forgetful lately. Maybe you can see just from the picture, but it is just one layer of white flannel cut 36 x 36" and then ironed in one inch on all sides. I mitered the edges as I went and the covered the edge with a ribbon. I can imagine a lot of variations using this simple formula. . .
