Beautiful Blogger Blanket

I first came across the Beautiful Blogger Blanket whilst busy with Christmas preparations, so although I thought it a great idea I keenly watched its progress on Jill's blog Stocki  and enjoyed squares popping up on other square makers sites, without participating. 
When the deadline for squares was extended and I received a Granny squares crochet book for Christmas I decided to take action!

My first square is from the flower square dog coat in Granny Square Crochet by Catherine Hirst.

It was easy to follow and I love the flowery middle.

Those of you who have followed me for a while will realise that I love flower designs and colour however, I like to have a go at something different....
A while ago the perfect project for granny squares  presented itself in the form of  the Doctor's TARDIS.
The layout and windows were designed by RW Junior.
So for all the Whovians here is my second square!

The squares are all 100% cotton from my stash.
It is amazing how each is so unique and behaved differently!

The flower square has from the centre: Wendy Supreme, Rowan handknit cotton and Freedom Sincere.
The Tardis window square was hooked with  Craft cotton, Anchor Style Creativa, and Wendy Supreme.

They weigh in at 8g and 15g

I am so proud to be involved in a project with so many fellow crocheters from across the globe brought and sewn together by Jill.
A huge thank you to her for the inspiration and all the finishing off!

They're great! Well done for getting involved - I thought about it but couldn't justify taking on another project! :)

These turned out very pretty! I like how well the colours of your squares go together, and the Dr. Who square definitely made me laugh. There are so many crocheted Dr. Who things popping up! I should think of some way to incorporate the BBC Sherlock into crocheting...
