It started with an idea for a bedspread but when I realized how MANY grandma squares were required, I gave up and made a baby blanket instead. And I’ve also learned that if you’re going to work with grandma squares, attach all ends at once to avoid having to do everything at the end… as I did. Lol.
In the beginning, I decided on a color scheme and then I made different variations, when done I placed them all on the floor and moved the squares around until I found a flow of patterns and colors that I enjoyed. I crochet mine together, you can choose to sew if you prefer but I think it looks nicer to crochet and I also did an decorative edge around the entire blanket. There are many to choose from on Pinterest, I chose Shell Edging for my blanket.
