I've decided to do this tutorial in two parts, because I have a feeling I'm going to get pretty wordy and I don't want it to be "the post that never ends." So this first part is how to make the blanket and part 2 is how to make the bib, burp cloths, and onsie.
This gift set consists of:
12. Fold the binding out to the right so it forms a 45 degree angle down towards the corner of the blanket, as shown. Now fold it back down along the new edge, lining up the mark with the corner of the blanket. The binding will hang off the end of blanket a little as shown.
I usually just pin and sew one side and corner at a time. This way I'm no holding a blanket with a million pins. After I get around a corner, then I pin that next side.
