for Blanket Construction
100% Cotton fabric in age appropriate prints.
Blankets should be approximately 18" square. They must have cotton
flannel backing and no batting. Do not tie Preemie
quilts. Use minimal quilting on preemie blankets, stitching from ¼”
to ½” around all four sides. We cannot accept knitted or
crocheted blankets for Preemies.
