I’m going to try and document each of my projects I am working on, and post updates as I go.
Today’s blog: The School Blanket
My Auntie runs a knitting club at her primary school, and the children have been working on small squares to make a blanket. My Auntie asked me to sew them together to create the final blanket and I gladly accepted the challenge!
I didn’t get a picture of all the squares separate, but they were lovingly separated into colour order. So I thought I’d take advantage of the organisation and sew them in a rainbow 🙂
So here is a picture journey of the blanket so far!
A Few squares sewn, under the watchful eye of my Staffie x Collie, Sally

Nearly finished the sewing
Now to sew in the ends!
A little close up of starting the border in the School’s colours
Row two of the border, and a super good shot of the whole blanket
Lots of little squares made by school children
I just love close ups, right?
The next stages will be to build on the border, more pale blue to establish a good outline, and then I am planning to use the Burgundy school colour to make a scalloped edge maybe? I’ve been wanting to try out some interested edging stitches 🙂
More updates to come soon!
