progress on my fusion blanket

Before our vacation, I joined a crochet-a-long for the fusion blanket. Since returning home, I've been trying to complete one block a day. Then when I have four blocks done, I join them into a row. Last night I put my first 2 rows together....
 and the back...
I'm really enjoying this, and if I keep on with my current plan I should have my blanket completely finished in a couple of weeks. Let's make the end of August the goal, shall we? My completed blanket will have 24 squares so this is 1/3 done. 2 more blocks are crocheted and the rest are sewn and ready for blanket stitching. I also think I will put a ruffly crochet border on it when it's done.

I didn't want you to think that all I'd been doing is playing with my pictures of London! Not so! What have you been making?

This blanket looks so pretty! I think a crocheted ruffly border will be perfect! I saw some really pretty napkins with a crocheted border yesterday and I reserved the crochet border book from the libray so that I can try it out.

Love the soft colours you are using for your blanket squares.

Hmm!! I am painting my trims and frames...
