While looking for granny square patterns I accidently found this one and I just have to make one!
Anyone who's also (planning to) making this blanket? We can motivate each other and share pictures of our progress and finally our completed blankets.
The pattern can be found on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/babette-blanket.

I -to be honest- don't use the pattern (just refuse to pay for what I can make with some common sense  Roll Eyes) but printed the picture of the whole blanket and divided it in 10 sections with a colour pencil.

This is what I made so far:

and 2 more after taking this picture.

This looks like fun!  The 80 GDs from the GD Swap R7 will make a great start.  Not sure when I'll be able to get a good start on a babette blanket, but I'll bookmark this thread, just in case.

I started one last month and posted pics in the regular granny CAL but haven't made much progress yet. I am just learning crochet so every time I see something new I have to learn it and the last new thing gets put on the back burner. Crochet ADD? Yes! Maybe posting in 2 CAL's will force me to do more. hehe

I did start one new 12" block with a floral center and think I will do all of the 12" in something different to add some spice.

BennuBird, I love that flower motif!  I want to do something similar with mine.  Squares are fine, but flowers fun.

Good idea to add some other motifs. I also made some (from the 'beyond the square book/CAL), but I'm not sure yet if they'll look nice in my blanket.

How do you all plan on joining the squares?

I don't have the original pattern, but I would assume it is just stitched together. I don't know if I would like it as much in single crochet, would need to see it.

You mean slip stitch? I'll try that too. I almost finished all squares for my first section and now I'm experimenting with joining methods...progress pics soon!

Well I've almost finished one of the biggest squares. I'm using greens, yellows, white, maybe some black and a couple of balls of mini mochi rainbow. Stash busting really. I had a ton of yarn in the right weight. I'll try to post pics as soon as I'm able.
