my first finished project! Monogrammed Baby Blanket
Hi all,

I just wanted to share a pic of my first finished project. Yeah! It ia baby blanket for my niece, Veronika. Although this is the first project I finished, it is the second project I started. (Still working on the first project I started, which is a shrug). I did not have a pattern for this blanket, I just winged it. For the letter in the center, I printed out a "V" on graph paper and calculated the pattern from that. And yes, the bottom borders are intentionally larger than the top borders--I was trying to be artistic.

Great job. It looks very pretty. I love the V in the center.

That is the most original pretty baby blanket I have ever seen my brother is going to have a baby any day(you know what I mean) and I would like to make a blanket for him or my toddler and I just can't decide what to do.
