Receiving blanket

I made my first handmade item for the shop

It's a mitered corner baby blanket.  It's a nice light-weight for summer since it doesn't have batting like a quilt.  The top layer is from a vintage sheet, the backing is kona cotton. It is quite large at approximately 31" x 43".
I plan on making a few more for my etsy shop and see if there is any interest. I'm also thinking of making square ones since they are practical for swaddling a baby.  I would love some feedback! What do you look for in a receiving blanket? Do you love large blankets or prefer smaller ones?

Thanks for reading!


I would love to hear from you. Thanks for your comments.
