FO Friday - Little Square Baby Blanket

I'm so excited that I finally have one of my big projects finished!  The Little Square Baby Blanket is finally done.  I've showed it to you in progress, so many times (here, here, here, here, here, and here)

I had a few difficulties with this blanket.  The soon to be mom asked me very nicely for no purple.  She knew the general idea of what I wanted to do for her and she know that I was using the left overs from my ripple.  Using my left overs meant I could use a high quality yarn without spending a ton of money and that made her happy.  She knows that purple is my favorite color, but she really just isn't a fan.

She really loves brown, that's why I chose to put the squares together with this nice brown.


So are you ready to see it?!  Here it is all complete:






The back looks just as good as the front, as you can see above.


I am so in love with this blanket and I'm sure that the mom to be will love it!!
