Find me a heavy, warm blanket.

Please recommend to me your favorite heavy, warm blanket! I've realized that I like sleeping under something pretty heavyweight, and while I love my down duvet, it's not really doing the trick. I don't think I need something that's specifically a weighted blanket, just something that will be thick or dense enough that I'll really know it's there. [more inside]

advice for sewing baby blankets

I love sewing small burp cloths and baby quilts for friends. But I'm hitting a wall, where friends are having babies faster than I can churn out little quilts. If you have some experience sewing or quilting, can you help me figure out a better method with decent results? These aren't meant to be heirloom pieces, just heartfelt and unique small blankets or quilts to welcome a new baby and brighten their days. [more inside]

Where can I donate handmade quilts in Maryland/USA/internationally?

My mother retired and has been making quilts at an amazing pace. She can make all sizes. She also knits and crochets blankets. She has plenty of fabric/yarn, but nobody to give her quilts to. Does anybody know a specific group, WITH CONTACT INFORMATION, that she can donate them to in Maryland, the USA, or internationally?

Seeking high-quality bedding

Seeking suggestions for high-quality bedding (sheets, linens, blankets, etc). I don't care at all about name brands/designer brands, etc. if that makes any difference—just want something of very good quality. In NYC, but online works, too. Thanks!

What knittable baby gifts are most appreciated?

My close friend is pregnant (yay!) and I'm a knitter, so I'd like to make her a whole mess 'o' baby stuff. But I also want it to be useful. I don't know anyone else with a baby, so tell me, Internet, what knittable items/garments do new parents really end up using for their infants? [more inside]

Krak des Blanketiers

My housemate and I, and our across-the-hall neighbours, will soon be throwing a combined blanket fort party. If anyone has done something similar, do you have any tips for the logistics of actually constructing said fortress? We're thinking twine strung across rooms, secured at the wall by those little adhesive hook things, creating a frame for draping our linen - but there are worries about the strength of those little adhesive hook things. For reference, our apartments are 1920s Art Deco things with very prominent architraves (I think that's the word - skirting boards coming down from the ceiling, is what I mean) which we are thinking of using as our anchor points.
