baby blanket

My cousin is expecting a baby in October, which I am very excited about because we now live relatively close to her and her husband.  I made her this blanket for a recent baby shower.

The front is made from thrifted receiving blankets and some Alexander Henry fabric; the back is thrifted blue flannel.  I appliqued a bird and embroidered some flowers and “2009.”  Was going to add baby’s name in another block, but I figured personalization like that is safest after the baby has been born.
