My friend Karen is pregnant and I just got word that it’s a girl!  She isn’t due until March 2015 but I couldn’t wait to get a start on making a baby blanket for her and the new arrival!  I used charm squares called Celebration by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda.  It is CUTE!!!  Love pastels!  It reminds me of Easter, and the baby will be here just in time to celebrate Easter!

I alternated the celebration squares with white squares.  A very simple and easy design.Celebration Baby Blanket (2 of 9) Finished blanket top!Celebration Baby Blanket (3 of 9)That little pink sheep is so adorable!
