I started this blanket a few months ago and put it down and got caught up doing other style blankets for Project Linus. I call this the “Magic Blanket” because I wasn’t happy with the colors, until I added the orange and magically I got the pop I was looking for. 50×50 .This is a solid granny square, you can find the free pattern, with excellent instructions at Fiber Flux .

“Strawberry Shortcake Blanket” is the name for this cheerful blanket, I chose the name because of the pretty colors that remind me of beautiful strawberries. 46×46
One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.

I received a generous donation of red yarn a few weeks ago and decided to make a blanket to honor July 4th. This blanket is larger (50×50) then most of the blankets I have made for Project Linus, suitable for an older child or teen. A simple large granny square, with a finishing picot stitch to represent the stars on the flag. I didn’t plan it this way but finished just in time for Flag Day, just an added bonus! Happy Flag Day!

A new blanket, on such a beautiful spring day. This is a large solid granny square, that is nice and soft for a baby. Each blanket that is made receives a small Project Linus label , that is very cute.
I didn’t plan it, but the label will match nicely.

“The Blue Blanket” was bit of a challenge for me. It’s been several years since l have made a granny square blanket, and I’m glad its finished. There is many ways to join the squares together, l chose to sew mine . The sewing is the part l don’t care for much. In the end l have a new blanket for Project Linus . I’m sure it will make a child happy. 45×36
