This is the post where I get all self-indulgent and ask for your help. As many of you know, I have a soft spot for knitting and other crafty pursuits that require wool, sticks and some quiet, meditative time. I also love receiving things in the mail and earlier this year decided to combine the two and join a little knitting swap. Our little group of 12 european knitters have been busy making 12" squares for each other and sending them off in the post each month. Each month, one lucky lady receives 12 squares of her choosing, enough to make a small patchworked blanket. Well, my month has come and gone and I have receive my 12 lovely sunny squares. The only problem is that I'm not sure what to do next, in particular, I'm not really sure how to sew them all together.
I think I need to create a border to frame each one and give the blanket a bit of "togetherness". At one point I contemplated taking these little squares off my doomed, beach dress and creating a border from them. I still haven't gone completely off that idea. It also need a backing, only I'm not sure what.
So ideas? I'll take any suggestions. I'd also love to know which option you like A or B (they're different, I promise).
