I put together this little fleece blanket edged with satin blanket binding as a quick and inexpensive baby gift. One package of the binding goes around a 36" x 45" rectangle, so I get a yard of fleece, square it up and then trim the width to 45". I pin the binding around the edge and then zig-zag it in place. It only takes about an hour, start to finish and makes a really nice gift. I really loved the colors in this blanket. I think the orange stripe really sets it off.
I love a quick and easy finish.
