I finally finished this baby blanket.  My first project from the last issue I bought from Family Circle Magazine.  It was easy and fast, but putting all the squares together was boring and I kept on putting it off until finally I gave it to my aunt to do it for me.  I love the middle square.  It was a little complicated for me since I am not an expert on crochet, but it was fun.  Question, do I have to block it? or should I just leave like that?  As you can see, it is a little on the thin side.
Comments will be appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

That's absolutely gorgeous!  What issue of FC was it in?  What yarn/colours did you use?  They look great together!!!

Looks great! You don't really need to block and if you used acrylic yarn it doesn't really back anyway.  The middle square looks like one of the squares in 200 crocheted blocks. There is a pattern for a tote bag in the most recent Interweave Crochet Mag using that same square.

Ooooh, such dreamy colors.  Any baby would appreciate such a lovely, summer-y blanket.

That's  gorgeous. I love the middle square. That's what caught my eye. I'm the child who was just barely taught to crochet and I don't know the details, so: What were the different types of stitches you used for the inside square? Just wondering. Maybe I could try that at some point. It is really really lovely.

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

Thank you all the the nice comments.
I used Bernat Softee in solid pink and a variegated color.  Regarding the stitches, I'm new to crochet too, I just followed the pattern, but the majority of the squares were just double and single crochet.  Like I said, the middle one was somewhat difficult for me, but I managed to make it.

What a gorgeous blanket! I love how you used a solid color for the centers then bordered with variegated, and then used varigated for the middle floral. Really lovely!
