The first blanket I made for my local chapter of Project Linus was a self-binding baby blanket. Missouri Star Quilt Company offers an amazing tutorial on YouTube
The blankets are so easy, quick and soft. Once I go the hang of the corners, I was able to make a few of these in a weekend.
You only need one 30 X 30 piece of fabric for the front and one 40 X 40 piece of fabric for the back. I hope you have a great time with this project.
