Come Visit me at View from the Fridge!

Hi friends! It is definitely summer in our neck of the woods, how about you? I have been feverishly working on transforming my kitchen for the last week. You can see some of the progress here if you missed it.

Today I am hanging out at View from the Fridge. My friend Katie just gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy and since we like to help each other out here in blogland, I am sharing  a post with her readers, so she can be where she needs to be! I’m sharing the how-to on this baby quilt:

Receiving Blanket Quilt 36


Make a Baby Quilt from Receiving Blankets!

Perfect timing, right? I made it for my neighbor. Guess what it’s made out of? You’ll have to go see!

Check it out here!

I’ll be back tomorrow to share my Pottery Barn knock-off for our Get Your DIY on themed party coming up Sunday. Our theme is knock-offs 🙂

  2. Hi Christy!
    Thanks again for your help!! What a beautiful quilt! I’m officially inspired to make one the next time I get out my sewing machine! Your neighbor is lucky to have such a talented and thoughtful neighbor!

    Can’t wait to see your PB Knock Off tomorrow, and to stop over and link up on Sunday!

    Have a great rest of the week and weekend!!

  3. Genius!! When my kids were babies, the receiving blankets were blah and boring. I had no idea they’d come this far. I love this idea. 🙂 Now I gotta get me a baby somewhere….


    • Ha ha…don’t be stealin’ anyone’s baby now! They have come a long way, aren’t these so cute?? My brother and his wife are pregnant with their first baby…a girl!! The last five babies in our family have been boys, so we are so excited! Can’t wait to make some girly things! 🙂

  4. Hey Christy,

    Love from London
