Ok so I started this blanket when I was pregnant with my youngest. It all came about because she liked the smaller baby version I made for him in blues. So I started making squares for it out of pinks and other soft shades that she asked for. I made just over 200 squares. Then realized that I needed to work out how many I really needed to make a square. So I went with 14 x 14 squares as I already had enough for that. Then my oldest got hospitalized, I went into labor and bam I had 3 kids. So the squares were put on the back burner for a while. I then pulled them out the other day after I finished another baby blanket for my soon to be great nephew. So after about 5 months of work the blanket is done. I have to say this is the longest I've ever worked on one blanket!

The whole thing on my queen sized bed
