Baby Receiving Blanket with Satin Binding in 10 Minutes Flat! The Quickest Receiving Blanket Ever

This is such a simple and quick quilt to sew!  It also is fairly inexpensive, depending on how expensive your fabric is that you have chosen to work with.

Plus, you can complete it in 10 minutes.  Seriously,  It is that quick.  That's what makes it the perfect baby shower gift for someone in a time crunch (like I always seem to be)

First you will need:
1 package of Satin Blanket Binding
1 Yard of Knit Fabric-Cut into 36" square

Sew the binding to the knit fabric.  There are a ton of really great tutorials and videos online of how to do binding.  Doing satin binding is a little bit easier than regular binding because you can sew both the top and the bottom on at the same time.  Satin binding has already been folded over perfectly and there is a nice crease down the middle.  So shove that crease all the way over to the edge of your knit fabric.  If you want you can use wonder clips, alligator hair clips, straight pins, or whatever else you use to secure your fabric in place.  Now top stitch that binding to your knit fabric. 
When you get to your corner, sew all the way to the edge, then pull your blanket out of the machine, and gently fold/crease your binding so that it will go down the next side of the blanket.  Make sure that your point on the outside of the blanket and the inside corner all line up. 

And now you are all finished and have an absolutely adorable baby quilt.  It really should be quick.  It really is the perfect last minute baby shower gift.  Quick, cost effective, and pretty darn cute!

Looks easy enough for me to get my mum old sewing machine back from my sister and get sewing again after too many years t remember. Also going to be a grandmother for the first time in October so of course this caught my attention Bobbie.
