Irish fabric: large and soft blankets in pinks

A gorgeous (Irish turned Aussie) friend of mine knows my penchant for fabric and making baby blankets, and so bought me these two gorgeous varieties of a minky type fleece all the way from Hickey's fabric store in Ireland when she was last there.

It's taken me ages to decide what to do with them, and I am happy with the result including some fancy stitching, courtesy of my fabulous Janome. These are a larger size than my other blankets, measuring about 78 x 112cm (31 x 44 inches).

I loved them so much I made two of each and put one of each in the store and the other two in the cupboard for special gifts.
