Have joined most of the squares (I made 40) and see that I will need quite a few more (actually I think I may need at least another 40). The size here is 28 inches and I'm thinking it should be at least 50 plus inches as I would like for it to be able to cover the top of a bed.
Right now I'm not sure about the colors but maybe with colored pillows and bedding it may pop more. But that will remain to be seen for quite a while. The warm weather will now slow down the progress of this. I can get the individual flowers made but sewing together may have to wait. It is certainly a warm, cozy blanket.
When I make the next one I will have the white background which I think I would have liked better although I am pleased that I am able to use yarn and leftovers that I have.
