This is very pretty although I can see it would be a lot of work.  I like the colours you used and the border that brings them all together.  I also like the squared circle motif.  Do you have a link to a pattern for it?

it was in Crochet Today but here is a link to the pdf. I made mine with a thinner yarn so the squares are not as big. http://www.coatsandclark.com/NR/rdonlyres/73826811-2FA1-4DF8-B9C7-57373C9635E8/123469/CTFeb0869.pdf

That is a lovely spread.  I definitely like your color version better, it's all very pretty and bright without being overwhelming.  What an awesome swap package!
