Quilt Idea

I want to try something a little different quilt-wise.  Obviously, I LOVE the look of quilts.  But sometimes they are a little stiff and unforgiving.  With time and many washes quilts become softer.  But I want to create a quilt/blanket that is soft and cuddly right away.  Right now Coraline doesn't sleep with a blanket, but I would like to have one ready for her when the time is right.

I saw a post about using a flannel blanket as the batting and not quilting the piece together.  I'm not sure how she put it together, but my guess was she did a tie quilt.  I think something like that would create a very movable, soft quilt. 

I think that will be my next project.  My creativity juices are starting to flow again!

I hadn't thought about making something for Brody for when the time comes that he sleeps with a blanket (he still sleeps with nothing in his crib as well). I can't wait to see this idea come to life!
