receiving blankets

I really want to make whatever I can for the baby so I did a little research and found some standard measurements for receiving blankets. I ended up using the width of the flannel (45" or 1.1 metre) and making it square. After trimming the flannel pieces, I rounded the corners using the lid of a round box I have. Then I cut 2" wide bias strips of cotton fabric to do the binding. For the first one, I had cut 1.5" strips and found it was too narrow to bind both sides. The list of baby essentials I found suggested having 4-6 of these blankets so I'm only half way through...
