Blanket Blitz 2010


I'm back from vacation and have decided on a new format for the Blanket Blitz.

For every newborn blanket you make your name will be entered for the prize. So the more you make the more times your name is entered.


The contest will run now thru September 30th.


I am looking for newborn size blankets. The smallest they should be is 30x30. If you are making a blanket that is rectangle then the smallest side should be 30". They should be crocheted, knitted or quilts. The only requirement for the contest is that they be handmade.


If you have any questions please ask.


Maybe some of you could share your favorite baby blanket patterns. You can post them in the comments section of this post or email them to me and I will post them.

And the winner is......

Beth P. from Virginia!!!! Congratulations Beth. I will be sending your prize out next Wednesday. I will be away until then.

Challenge Deadline

It has occurred to me that I need to clarify the due date for the challenge.
I had said June 21st, but some have asked if that is the date to mail or to have it to me.
Well, here is the answer. If you wash the clothes before sending then you can send up to the 21st.
If it is unwashed then please have it to me by the 21st so I have time to wash it before delivering.
If you choose to wash it yourself (its not required, just helpful) please use only unscented detergent and fabric softener sheets (if you use them).

If you have any questions please ask!

Blanket Drive

It's time for Bella's Babies annual blanket drive. Check out the "Winter is Coming" post at our website.
