WIP - Floral Blanket

I was watching another crochet video on youtube the other day from the Crochet Geek on how to turn a flower into a granny square. Of course I had to have a go (o_o)
The Crochet Geeks youtube channel is here if you want to check it out.

The first square I made
I really liked how the square turned out. In fact I liked it so much that I thought it would look great as a blanket.

I really like the pink flower with the purple background.
I decided that pink, purple & white would look great together and make a pretty baby blanket for a little girl. Something just the right size to cover a pram or bassinet.

I didn't think that having a heap of floral squares together would look all that great. Shame on me for thinking that too many flowers might spoil it (O_O) but I decided to make some 'regular' squares to go in between the floral squares.

I kind of like this layout for a blanket but I'm not too sure. I may rearrange it yet.
Right now it measures 45cm x 60cm (17.7 inches x 23.6 inches) So I have a few squares to go yet.

What do you think? Does it look good so far?
