    First Birthday blanket!

    Hello beautiful FiberKind Community!!!

    First - A big thank you to all members who contributed pieces to the blanket. I was quite concerned in the beginning - what if we didn’t have enough for a blanket? But - we came together and we have enough pieces for TWO blankets! I’ve said it before, and I’ll continue saying it - you guys are amazing!

    The assembler and I thought it would be cool if we had a vote to see which way our first blanket would look. Votes will be collected through Midnight on Friday night (Eastern in the US).

    Our first choice is:

    I hope you enjoy these two options! Both look amazing in my opinion, and will be an awesome blanket for someone!

    The second blanket photos will be posted after we gather a few last pieces that are held up. :-)

          I think it would look more balanced if you put the fancy designs and lighter colors in the center. Gradating a spiral outward with the darker solid colors. Just wanted to throw a wrench at the monkey.....

            We could drive our volunteer assembler crazy with our suggestions but since you started it I think the five embellished squares should be the four corners and the center.

          I am sure we all have our ideas - but let’s not drive our assembler crazy as there really won’t be a consensus about how it should be.

            This is amazing, someone is going to have the most comforting blanket to chase away cold or doldrums.

                  Don't forget to vote on which version of the blanket you prefer by midnight tonight. I'm excited to see the results! Someone is going to get a fantastic Birthday Blanket!

                    Oh my goodness - it is as close to even as we can get with an odd number of voters.

                    Don’t be surprised if it looks a little different still. If you ever have assembled things like this you know when assembly time comes, sometimes blocks just don’t play together the way you think they will.

                      I agree with Kathy7661, these will be blankets made with love and we all know how those turn out.

                      I agree that the blanket will be fabulous no matter how the squares are arranged!

                    Our first birthday is well under way on assembly.

                    There will be a slight delay in the second blanket. I received news we have a few more squares getting mailed today, and might even have enough for a second full size blanket! I told her we were happy to be patient.

                      That's neat! It will be fun to see the pictures of that one also!

                      Our first blanket is done! Isn’t she beautiful!!!

                      And our winner has been chosen. I thought it would be fun to play a game “20 questions style”. Maybe we’ll learn some fun things about our winner! Please ask questions that generally will have a short response (we don’t want to overwhelm). The winner will answer the questions to me through a private message and I’ll relay the answers. He/she has committed to answering daily.

                        This is amazing! I'd like to know what is the winner's favorite non-yarny thing to do?

                        The blanket is perfect! Work of art! What a lucky winner!
                        My question is does the winner has a family member who has fiber-related hobby?

                      We have a couple answers coming in!

                      Q1 - From TexasPurl - Which do you enjoy more - Knitting or Crochet?
                      A1 - Definitely Knitting as it allows me to read books at the same time (except difficult patterns)

                      Q2 - From DJM - What is your favorite weight of yarn?
                      A2 - 2 Fine / fingering or 3 light / DK
