In the first photo, that's Cleo on the left and Jasmine (Jaz) in the bottom right corner.

I started this blanket February 21 and finished it March 27. It's taken me this long to get around to posting photos! And, of course, I either forgot to measure it or misplaced the measurements. I'll ask Greg to measure it for me - done: The blanket is 78 inches x 95 inches. I have photos of each of the 35 squares and will (sometime) be posting them too.

The blanket was made for Lauren (my son's girlfriend) just because. As it turns out, the blanket arrived a few days before her 25th birthday on April 18!

General descriptions of the squares are...

Row 1: Flower, Turtle (stuffed head), U.S. flag variation, Mondrian inspired, Cat (applique)

Row 2: Puffs square motif, Puffs variegated (row by row), Daisy, Zig Zag, Post textured (solid color, rows from center)

Row 3: Lion's head, Peppermint, Diagonal square motif, Heart in Puffs, Daffodil
