blanket with color blocks


the blanket for my mother is ready and waits freshly washed and folded on the table, but i think i’ve made a big mistake. the color combination is too ‘wild’ for her and especially the bright pink. tomorrow i bring the wrapped blanket with a nice letter to the post office and after my mother has received it, she will let me know.
here are some pictures:
the seams between the blocks are stretchable

  11. Wow! This blanket is beautiful. I love the pink in it and I’m sure your Mum will love it 🙂

  12. That is gorgeous! The pink was a great addition, I’m sure she’d love it!

  13. It is absolutely gorgeous!

  14. Frisse, vrolijke en lenteachtige kleuren.
    Daar wordt je moeder vast heel blij van, zeker nu het nog zo lang koud blijft.
    En leuk, de plaatsing van de bloemetjes. Als een soort bloemperkjes in het midden van een tuin.

  15. I think it looks real nice – the pink doesn’t look all that bright. Your Mom will love it. 🙂

  16. I think your mother will love it – it’s wonderful and the colour combination is perfect -not wild at all although nothing wrong with a bit of wild sometimes 🙂

  17. Je zou nog verrast kunnen worden door de smaak van je moeder. Ik was het in ieder geval wel toen mijn moeder aangaf felle kleuren te willen in de deken die ik voor haar haak als ik in Nederland ben. Mijn moeder is blijkbaar toch hipper dan ik ben. 🙂
    Anyway…ik vind je deken weer een klassieker. Mooi met die gekleurde grannies in de hoeken.
    Ik las dat het nog steeds Siberisch koud is in Nederland. Je moeder zal dus zeker blij zijn met je kado.
    Warme groeten uit (een ook koud en stormachtig) Ierland

  18. Mooi! Verrassende compositie, erg leuk!

  19. It’s beautiful! She will love it 🙂
