Thank you so much for your ideas and kind words, I definitely have to remember this. As it turns out already, I have enough squares for three 36x45 blankets and two 36x36's which I am actually falling in love with as they will make great gifts to either mommas or hospitals. Ones that I will be proud to give. I guess I just had to work them up and make the tops before I called them a failure.
I told her that only someone that quilted or knew to look really careful would see them. Most people look at the gifts; not the mistakes.
