This is pretty cool! I felt like the original was awesome but possibly too modern arty for say, my couch, but seeing you guys' beginning I realize it can be a little less jarring with the right colors. FUN.

I'm doing an after school crochet activity this year, and I'm hoping that we can make a blanket out of our randomly sized squares. Not quite a Babette blanket because we're using "traditional" granny squares, but the idea will be the same!

im thinking about doing this blanket. my boyfriends friend gave me a bag full of yarn. im using the colors that look the best together. pinks, whites, browns, maybe the purples will be taken out.

that1girl, I think it looks rather snuggly! Smiley But it definitely has some "texture" that doesn't look like the original. Did you use different yarn weights? Or, maybe it has something to do with the sizes of the blocks?

Maybe you could block it- if it's acrylic, I think you just need to wet it, and then pin it down and let it dry (I'm not actually sure... I've never tried it).

I really like how the colors look all stitched up, especially with those pops of gold!

that1girl, the colors and layout are beautiful! Blocking is a must in these things, I find you have to block pieces before you sew them together, AND after. It can still misbehave though : /
