I finished my first attempt at a pieced-together blanket. My ultimate goal is to make a covering for my (very large) bed, so I thought I'd start small:
The flower in upper left tucks through the loop opposite to act as a loose button.
There are a lot of technical flaws (like the squares not actually being square!) but I learned a lot from it, and that was the main goal.
The finished product is cozy, colorful, and machine washable, so I hope the 6-month-old I made it for won't be too critical.
