Sweet dreams little Anthony! - Baby blanket

I have been away from my sewing machine lately but I am happy I was still able to finish this baby blanket for a friend of mine who just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. I had so many quilting cottons stashed that I had a hard time deciding what to use. I wanted something cute and yet easy to sew since I didn't had much time at hand and I initially intended to finish it before the baby came... Even with the easy project I still missed the deadline and now I am waiting for a new opportunity to bring in my gift for the little one.

The pictures are blocks from My Baby's Day fabric from Elizabeth Studios and they are simply amazing. It took me a while to settle for the background fabric but blue was the color to go for boys and yellow was matching the blocks borders. I am still not sure if it was the most fortunate choice but I think it is cute in the end.
 The back is a dino printed cotton since the mother loves dinosaurs.
