With Little Girls in Mind Baby Blanket

This little blanket was my March project for the 200 crochet Squares Cal using blocks from 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton. 




I enjoyed making this because the blocks were all very easy to make and I loved the pretty candy colours I was using.

Blocks used
Block 113 Wisteria 
This is one of my favourite blocks it's lovely to make and so very pretty I used nine.


Block 37 Pin Stripes
A very easy but really effective block I used four of these.



Block 36 Pink Stripes
Then the easiest of them all, I used twelve of these.

I sewed each square onto the blanket as I made it and weaved in the ends so when it was all done there was only the border to make...



I sometimes find that it's easier to make it up as you go along and this is what I did here very simple but effective and I love it, I was quite proud of the finished result. I think it's just right for this blanket.  I will be writing it out and will share it with you all when I get time.



So there you have it one cute little baby girl blanket all ready to be popped into the box destined for Operation Orphan.



Sugar and spice and all things nice. :) xx

Hope everyones having a great week.
