Chevron Chenille Baby Blanket

This was a gift to a marvellous couple who are imminently due to give birth.

I’d been dreaming of it for a while. Ever since I first saw this blog post, probably a couple of years ago.

I followed all of the steps in Aesthetic Nest’s tutorial, basically to the letter. My sewing is, regrettably, not as neat as hers, but I’m very pleased with the final quilt. I hope that the darker orange flannel will show through a bit more after a few washes. But it’s very snuggly.

I hope M, Y and Chooky enjoy it. x
