FO Friday - Joint Project with Grandma Donna

A while ago on some WIP Wednesdays, I gave you updates, here, here, and here, on a project that I was working on with my Grandma Donna.  It was a blanket for my cousin Hannah.  My Grandma has finally finished it and here it is.  The pictures were taken in my Grandma's living room at night with a bright light on, so the color may be a bit off.





So, the project was divided up like this:  I did the center square, the heart appliqués, one corner square, and I started all of the other corner squares for my Gram.  My Gram did the side rectangles, 3 of the corner squares, joined the pieces, and did the border.

I think it turned out really nice!  You can see that the green yarn is sparkly!  Its so cute!

Details:
Pattern:  Teen Throw
Yarn:  Caron Simply Soft Party in Spring Sparkle (green) (5 skeins), Caron Simply Soft in Mango (orange) (about 2.5 skeins), and Caron Simply Soft in Watermelon (pink) (2 skeins)
Hook:  5.5mm I hook
Size:  43in square (109cm square)

This was a fun project and I'm glad my Grandma finished it in time for Christmas!

Don't forget to see everyone else's FO over at Tami's Amis.
