Heirloom Baby Blanket for Blessing Day

IMG_20141022_163629My mother came to visit me recently. She was working on a blessing blanket for my brother and his wife who are expecting next month.

As we visited, she told me about it. The pattern is simple, but meaningful. The lace edging is my great great grandma Celinda’s pattern.  My great aunt studied the pattern from scraps of lace we still have and wrote it down. My mother adds it as an edging to all her heirloom blessing blankets. It’s beautiful. A little bit of pioneer history, and lots of love, from grandma.
