Grannies Galore

Here are some of the squares I am putting together from the Granny McPhee Swap. I have bordered them each in Linen, joined four, then bordered in Misty Taupe, and then again in Sea Spray, which is also a Misty color from Vanna's Choice. Two views - and as you can see one in the middle isn't bordered yet as a group, but joined.

I have a sample border in some of the Misty colors....trying out something new. This afghan will really be a bedspread when I am through, so I think the last borders will have to be fairly large. I just did a corner on this one to show someone on Ravelry.
What do you think? Not quite as sharp as Attic24, as she is SOOOOOOOOOO good with colors, but acceptable I think!


  1. LOVE IT! I wish I had gotten in on this swap . . . I think granny blankets are so colorful. I like your idea of the squares of four outlined . . . nice.

  2. Your work is as good as anyone's, BFF. You're the bomb when it comes to color combination and workmanship. I can't wait to see this finished. It's going to be a beautiful bedspread.

  3. I think it's lovely and I admire your patience and diligence with all those color changes and then sewing/crocheting the patches together...very nice work!

    Have a great day!

  4. Thank You!!!

    I got the pattern for that...:-) Looks great for passing the time...:-)


  5. This bedspread is going to be wonderful! I love the colors you chose.

  6. First thing that popped into my mind when I saw this was Ohhhh a LUCY Big Blanket! But then I read further and realized you are using the squares from the VC Granny McPhee swap and I got all excited! I LOVE what you are doing here...maybe I'll join the next one but that depends on how things go the rest of this summer and fall :) I'm looking forward to seeing this when its all done!

  7. Thanks everyone for the kind comments! You all are soooooooo wonderful!!!
