Babies are a great time to look at family traditions and then make them your own in your growing family. Growing up there always seemed to be a handmade blanket whenever you needed some extra warmth.

The most common kind was granny square blankets in a single neutral color. For my second baby I wanted to make him his own granny square blanket. I wanted more color than my grandmothers so I modified the traditional sunburst square to have larger spots.

Larger spots meant larger squares which coincidentally lead to less seaming. Seaming is the last thing I wanted to do while pregnant.
