So for the longest time i have been trying to get some friends interested in crochet. I would really love to make a blanket using granny squares made by other people. Like a patch work blanket. Problem is that i have only gotten one friend interested. So i am hoping to make friends on here and maybe in time, each of them will be so kind as to donate one unique granny square to my blanket. I think it would be really neat to see this happen. Each person has diferent patterns and colors and brands of yarn. So it would be pretty cool to tell my future grand kids that i made a blanket with squares from all over the world!

I think if you keep asking around you could get more people to. It will take time to get more people to do it but I think its a great idea :) How many squares did you want for me to do? Let me know :)

Ohh that sounds fun :)

Op I might have some squares left over from a blanket. I'll have to double check.

Ok im thinking the best way to do this is anyone interested in giving/getting a square can private message me with thier address to mail it to, and than I will reply with my address as well :) once we all have enough squares to make our blankets we should post photos too!

Hi everyone, just as a heads up...Lee678 (Laura) started a squares swap awhile back and it soon became apparent that a number of those who were excited about swapping squares had to drop out, so there weren't going to be enough squares to do the intended blankets.  Laura has continued to post two squares each month that measure about 8" each, so that is another way to get your granny square blankets complete.
