Two by Two Receiving Blanket

We thought Blossom and Grow would be absolutely perfect for remaking our Two by Two Receiving Blanket. We are so happy with how adorable it turned out!

Follow along with Kimberly in the tutorial below to see step-by-step how to make the Two by Two Receiving Blanket.

This cute-as-can-be-quilt project can be done in a day or less and is beginner-friendly, making it perfect for new quilters or little ones who want to learn. It finishes at 26″ x 26″.
