This was a really quick and fun blanket. I found a tutorial through Google. Actually, there were several, so I don't remember which one I used. Anyway a 2 1/2 yards of flannel and an hour on the machine, bam! Blanket. I also played around with a fancy stitch around the edge of where the center meets the binding. I messed up the corners, so I angled them. I think it gives it an interesting twist.
