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!
