Blanket Progress

Well, it's now time to start assembling the quilt. All the pieces are crocheted and ready to go. After I get it all attached, I'll do a pretty border around it. I'm hoping to have it done by the end of the week.

So, here is the first picture of all the piles of squares, 180 in total!!!!

Here is the first ones sewn together. I have to tell you about my new crochet hooks. They LIGHT UP!!!! I call them my little mini light sabers. And the handle is so much nicer to hold and my hands don't hurt as much when I'm crocheting. You can also buy them in knitting needles LOL

This is the first part finished. I attached all the tops to the bottoms, and put a simple string in between the squares to hold them together.

Here is a more upclose picture of what I have done.

I can't wait to get it finished and pictures of us all snuggling with it. LOTS of hard loving work have been put into it.
