The materials for this blanket are just absolutely edible. Trying to keep my two year old from playing with it WHILE I was making it was definitely a challenge - and she has two minkee blankets of her own already! So if you have a bunch of different colored minkee scraps this would be the perfect project to use them effectively. Dimensions for the quilt blocks using a 1/2 inch seam allowance:
48 - 4" x 4" blocks in various colors (sewn into 12 block strips and added like sashing)
3 - 3" strips x width of fabric for sashing (trim them to size after sewing)
1 - 27" x 33" front minkee
1 - 37" x 43" backing minkee
3 - 2 1/2" x width of fabric for binding strips (sewn together)
If you have any questions... ask!
