FO: another project linus blanket
(For those not familiar - www.projectlinus.org)

I finished this one in less than 10 days...

It's Caron Simply Soft Paints. It was so nice to work with - it has a cotton-y feel even though it's acrylic. This one turned out to be about 36" x 48".

The blankie and a closeup of the pattern (color shows better on the closeup):

I love that...is there a pattern, or, did you just make it up?

Pam - Thanks for the compliment. Sorry, no pattern - I saw a blanket that was similar, and just replicated it...
