I started out by choosing the colors for it from my Tilda Yarn selection. I made the Maybelle Flowers and then turned them into Maybelle Squares, joining them with an accent color and the Join-As-You-Go technique. With a twist, I should add, as the Maybelle Square doesn't have an even number of stitches for the granny clusters. I love how forgiving the art of crochet can be at times. No one would know if I didn't tell you. ;)
I then started on the border, which I always had clear in my head, but when I arrived to the edging I had to do a bit of testing to find the best finish. As I don't know the gender of the arrival of this new family member, I wanted it to be neutral; not too frilly, girly or scallopy. Yet not too plain and boring... But simplicity goes far. Like always.
The Maybelle Blanket is now finished and only needs a wash and blocking. I will write up the Maybelle Blanket Pattern in full for you here on the blog and organize a perfect Tilda Yarn Pack to go with it as well. So stay tuned. I'm hoping to have it all sorted for you soon.
Note: I have written about the Maybelle Blanket Project in following blog posts:
