A new use for some old cloth

I finally finished this blanket today (ordered by a friend for her new baby girl), and I have to say while I did not truly enjoy the process, I love the outcome. This baby blanket is made from 4-inch squares of feed sack cloth sewn in a quilt-like pattern, then backed with a soft pink minky dot chenille. The feed sack prints give this blanket a vintage look, which is great in my opinion because I am not a traditionalist when it comes to baby things. I have collected vintage feed sack prints for a few years now, I simply love them and I hope my friend loves this blanket!
