Finished Item - Floral Baby Blanket

Last night I managed to finish that floral baby blanket I've been working on this week. I must say that it looks really good. I told the boys I rocked (~_o) when it came to making this blanket. Honestly. I think it's one of the prettiest I have EVER made. It must be due to all of the flowers (~_~)

Before the border
I did three rounds of treble crochet (US double crochet) for the border.

I tried a new way of crocheting the squares together. I really like it.
 To join the squares together I placed them wrong side together. I joined them with a slip stitch, chained 3, skipped a stitch and then did another slip stitch until I reached the end of the square. I'm not sure I explained that very well but it sure does look nice. The squares sat flatter and it looks really nice.

I think the flash washed the colours out a bit :( sorry
