We have completed the squares for our Happy Days Blanket: 

PART 1 (Hakuna Matata Mandala Square)  

x4 (28cm x 28cm each)
Part 2 (Sunny Flower Square)

x10 (14cm x 14cm each) 
Part 3 (Tic-Tac-Toe Square)
x4  (28cm x 28cm each)

Part 4 (Solid Granny Square)
x10 (14cm x 14cm each)

Part 5 (Popcorn Flower & Leaves Square)
x8 (14cm x 14cm each)

Part 6 (Box Stitch Square)
x8 (14cm x 14cm)

Part 7 (Zooty Mandala Square) 
x4 (28cm x 28cm)
Part 8 (Happy Days Mandala Square) 
x4 (28cm x 28cm) 

You can use whatever method you prefer to join your squares.    You can also join them in whatever order you choose.

I will be crocheting a double row of dc with "Storm" (dark grey) around each 28cm x 28cm square;  and then using my VISIBLE JOIN to join them together.

I like the Visible Join because it is very forgiving - you still get a very neat join even if your squares are slightly uneven.     It also adds interest to your work giving a "stitched" look!

 My squares will be joined according to this chart:

I will post the pattern for my border and edging on Friday 14 November 2014 (the border will be a slight variation on the BABY GROOVYGHAN)

Please feel free to use your favourite border and edging.
