Madi's "big girl" blanket

When we had Lily we decided that we were going to wait a bit to take Madi out of her crib and give her a "big girl" bed. We had the craddle that Opa (David's grandpa) built when David's dad was born so we did have a place to put Lily!! And we knew that Madi would be sleeping in a double bed at mom's and dad's in Revelstoke so we weren't worried about rushing it!
I decided that to "help" with the transition from crib to bed that I would make a big deal about making her a new room. I had seen a blog with directions for a rag quilt and figured that it would be a fun project for me to do for Madi. I really played up this new big girl blanket and even let her help me pick out the material. It took me awhile cause I wanted to make it big enough for a twin bed (she is on a double though.. we had the mattress so why buy another be eh!) but I think it turned out pretty good

Madi "trying" it out before I was done sewing it!

At home in her "big girl" room!!

I LOVE the blanket Anne.
You did such a GREAT job on it.
I am afraid to sew mine because if might not look so nice. I wish I had done it when you were here. Maybe I will save it for next time.....
