Mother’s Day Blanket

For years I have wanted to make a blanket for my Mom. Nothing ever seemed quite good enough. I finally took the challenge head on and started designing one from the resources I have.
I took squares from Jan Eaton’s 200 Crochet Blocks, a join from an online tutorial and a border for Edie Eckman’s Around the Corner.
The blanket turned out soft, elegant and feminine.
