What about just making your own? I'm working on my first baby blanket now...actually it will be my first finished knitting project ever. I decided to just make my own pattern since I'm new to it so that I can knit in my comfort zone. 

So far its working out great and I just kinda make it up as I go :)

I think the easiest would be large needles/chunky yarn/quickest stitch you know

I always try to do a "car seat blanket", something just big enough for a car seat so it won't hang down.  People always get full size and they have to fold and such or they hang and drag, but it you make it to fit the car seat it seems more helpful.

There are a ton of patterns on ravelry.com - just do a pattern search for "quick baby blanket" or something like that. :)

 Just make her a plain yellow ,or any baby colors, or you could do stripes . Do you know how change from one color to the next color ?
