I have had this afghan magazine for many years now and have never made any of the patterns. They are all really beautiful, especially one titled Lacy Bouquet. The lady my mother works for is having a baby girl and she has chosen the colors raspberry, lime, yellow and white for her nursery. I decided that I would try out the Lacy Bouquet pattern only change it up to make it a baby blanket.

The difference between the lacy bouquet pattern and how I did it was the exclusion of a simple picot. The edges of the squares would have 4 picots each and attatch to eachother by those picot stitches. I just dropped them and turned the square into a regular granny square. I thought it would be much nicer this way for a baby.
