New date for the Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013 draw

Phew this post has been a long time coming... I'm sorry for the delay... you must have all thought I had taken your squares and run off with them!  

I will be drawing the name of the winner of the GORGEOUS 
Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013 on Sunday 31st March 
- Easter Sunday to some.  

During this next week I will be tantalising you by 
posting photos of the blanket finished.....

Meanwhile I thought I should show you the squares which 
I made for the blanket... 4 medium squares and lots of little ones:

The first 3 are all by the amazing Edie Eckman...

The first is from Edie Eckman's book, 
'Beyond the Square - Crochet Motifs',
p149, #106

The second square is from Edie Eckman's new book; 
' Connect The Shapes - Crochet Motifs' - p141, #55

The third square is also from Edie Eckman's, 
'Beyond the Square - Crochet Motifs',
P157, #113

Finally a medium good old granny square and lots 
of little ones to fill in some awkward gaps...

They are all now edged in cream as I did last year, 
and sewn together to form a wonderful blanket... 

As I say... lots of photos coming this week! 



  1. Your squares are beautiful Jill, hope your Dad's ok! looking forward to seeing the blanket and of course the draw next Sunday :)
