The inpiration for this project is a blanket a good friend of mine gave me when we found out we were pregnant with Morgan. It is a beautiful blanket that we used constantly for Morgan's first 4-6 months of life. Everywhere we went we would bring this blanket and lay it on the floor so she not only had a clean space to play but also so we wouldn't get spit up all over someone else's floor (my daughter could and would projectile spit up at any given moment). A co-worker of mine is also pregnant with a girl and is due 3 weeks after me. I had originally planned to sew this blanket for her daughter, but as you will soon see there are quite a lot of mistakes and frankly, it is my pride and joy, so I probably won't be giving it up anytime soon.
