Put together all (just 12 blocks not 25 like the pattern has)..I thought it would be a nice "throw" rather than "blanet"...
Hope you can see all the details in every block.....thanks for all your help too!!

Is it stored on Flickr? You can select a larger image size. I can't make that one larger, but if you post just the link so I can get to your Flickr page I can help.

Much better size! You can tr embroidery, but you'll have to be careful that the thread doesn't show through the front.

What about just a separate sheet of paper laid out in squares detailing what each square is. You could keep a master copy if it gets lost. That that way nothing would mar the beautiful work.

That is really, really nice. :heart: Thanks for the trouble of the second picture; it does show up better. We needed a closer look. A good variety of stitches/motifs.

Wow. :notworthy: I really don't have words to express how lovely that is! Your crocheted border is perfect. Congratulations on a real work of art. As I recall, this is a gift for a nephew's wedding? It is surely destined to be a treasured family heirloom. :woot:

Thanks so much for the enlarged picture. The detail is exquisite. The sunflower is indeed lovely but you could fall in love with each square! Well done.
