Notes

I didn’t follow the pattern layout. I only used 2 colours and I didn’t want 2 of the same blocks touching.

The blue is like a washed out jeans colour and the white is not pure white. I think it looks a little bit like Delft Blue pottery (I’m Dutch afterall ;)
It’s absolutely beautiful.

I did not like the way the original pattern puts the blocks together and finishes the edges so I experimented until I found a way I liked better.

You can read and download the detailed explanation on how I finished the blanket here

The finished size is about 160cmx130cm
