266 Squares!

This is what 266 squares look like! I have been working these colorful little squares for months and months. Maybe even a year... Or longer? Soon they will be stitched together and handed over to a very patient little girl who has been waiting and waiting for her mama to finish this. 
This will be my first ever completed blanket. Excited! Inspiration found here.

  2. Ooooh well done! They look beautiful! It's lovely when a blanket comes together. I am currently working on one with 432 squares. Only 50 more to go but I have to sew it all up and weave in the ends! Daunting, but worth it!!!!

    Have a lovely day!

Crocheted legacies are a wonderful thing! Can't wait to see it all together! Love all the inspirations you share with all of us! x&o, Annette
