Blanket Update

As you know, I am now into the home stretch with these crazy blankets. I finished the last square of the orange/magenta/yellow/red one & I couldn't wait to spread all the squares out to see what they looked like.





Not content with just looking at them, I decided to go ahead & put labels on them so that I know which square attaches to which other square. I can't remember who gave me the safety pin idea (or did I come up with it myself?), but I think it's going to work fabulously.





Now, I just need to finish the squares for the other three blankets & I can start piecing this one together. I'm excited - both to see this project finished & to get all of these squares OUT OF THE HOUSE! :)


P.S. I wrote this post on Sunday, & scheduled it to post on Friday, but here it is Thursday night & I've already pieced these squares together. I still need to do the border, so you'll have to endure at least one more picture (ha!). But I might take a break tomorrow - I think my arms are about to fall off.

I just love this. The colors are fabulous -- as I've said before, they remind me of Central America, or Africa. I really like the three solid color blocks, too. They're a great addition -- very unique.

Very impressive! Those are some sizzling hot colors!

I think it was a brilliant touch having one square be solid yellow. It reinforces all the other colors in the quilt, and provides a rhythmic feeling.

Yes...so much work in all these squares. And the blankets are beautiful! So what are you planning to do with all your time when you are done with this?
