Beautiful Blogger Blanket

I recently discovered Jill's Knitting and Crochet Blog - Stocki.  She has some wonderful projects that she is working on that caught my eye!  
Jill is hosting the Beautiful Blogger Blanket!  I am so excited about this! Basically she is asking for people to send in crocheted granny squares in any pattern or color and she will put them together into a blanket! Then those who participated have a chance to win the blanket! How cool is that???  The more squares you make, the more chances you have to win!  

One of the rules was to use 100% cotton for the yarn, so I picked 3 colors from I Love this Cotton - Rosey, Sage and Mullberry.  I found four different patterns to use and here is what I came up with!
I was inspired for this square from Craftyminz's blog.  She was doing a granny a day last year and made some fabulous ones! The Pattern was found on Ravelry.

I started with the pattern from Red Heart for this square but didn't like where it was going so I just stopped here and thought it looked pretty enough on its own! 

I loved how simple this pattern was!

This little square is my favorite! I know with my instagram it's hard to tell, but the flower is crocheted on top of the square so it pops right out! It soooo pretty!!!  I discovered this pattern on one of my many stalkings through pinterest.

I would love if some of my crochet friends got involved in this project! Head over to Jill's blog and get the scoop!!! I'll let you know if I win ;)
