I've had this one blanket that my grandmother made me when I was little. It's a bit too small for me to snuggle with on the couch when I watch tv or movies (I get cold easy) so I decided to make this.





I bought a bunch of random quarter flats from the store, and picked some fabric that sorta tied them all together for the back. (I love color). The stitching is kinda weird in some areas, and not all of the squares line up perfectly... but I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Cheesy

Thanks for looking.

Yessss!  Bright and funky is right.  I think this is great- the perfect blanket to snuggle under.
