I didn't get a chance to take pix of the full blanket because I was finishing the fringe the morning of the baby shower and then had SO much to do for the shower I was running in circles. (favors, diaper cake, etc!) After the fact it occured to me that I didn't take pix, I had this one photo from earlier in the project.

This is one of the first times that I fully followed a pattern without modifying it at all. It has fringe at the ends coordinated to the strips. It was crocheted in strips then sewn together. No ends to weave at all since the tassles/fringe just incorporated the loose ends.

The blanket is quite large for a baby blanket, larger than a crib mattress, and it took me forever!! I wanted to use modern fun colors rather than pastels, not sure how the colros will come acreoss in the photo.  The pattern showed it in purple & green (So cute!!) but I though that was more girly and I needed gender neutral here Smiley

That is a gorgeous blankie.  You have to love not having to weave in the ends.
