I whipped up this beauty the other week. I just want to snuggle up every baby in it. The top is by Anna Maria Horner and I used a solid on the back. I added the light pink pom poms on the longer sides.
I stitched the blanket every few inches so that it will stay secure but still have a little loftiness and snuggliness to it.
Those pom poms are the perfect whimsical touch.
Having a basic solid on the back with the contrasting color stitches is a great balance with the beautiful busy fabric on the front.
