You can also make colored squares separately, and move them around until you get a good color placement.

I can hardly wait to see yours!
I got my 16 yr old son to show me how to make the quilt block outlines & fill in the colours in microsoft word. I started the blanket 2 nights ago & I finished block 2 last night & wondered why it wasn't sitting right. I had counted the ridges on block 1 by 2's
I had to frog block 2 & am now knitting the other half of block 1 It won't take me long too knit back to where I was. Block 1 is red, Block 2 is forest green & block 3 is bright yellow.
