It all started last August when I was talking about my crafting for charity group looking for new recipients for blankets and my nephew said we could always deliver to his house. I filed away that thought and mentioned it to my sister who asked him if he really wanted a granny square blanket and he said that he did want a colourful one. My sister has several so he has grown up with them.
My sister and I agreed we could make one between us and used one of Attic24s colour packs as a starting point for the colours and added a few others which I had left over giving us 19 colours to make squares
I made all of the centre pieces and gave half to my sister
My approach to colour choice was to add one row to each square, using each of the colours - our only rule was that no square had one colour appearing twice. The colour swatch pegs were really useful for making the colour choices and then remembering them
