It is crochet - inspired by quilting of course (I have always had a soft spot for plus quilts). The colour scheme is sort of the Totally Groovy QAL one.
For the main colours I used some Sirdar Country Style yarn in different shades (on offer at HobbyCraft in the UK)- which is quite good value and can be washed whenever needed. The 'quilting' and border yarn is Patons Valiani in navy.

It is made out of granny squares - probably quite obvious from the pictures, and arranged as for a plus quilt. I tied the plus together with the same yarn (using single crochet stitches) and 'quilted' with the Patons yarn.
The good thing about the blanket being made out of granny squares is that I can make adjust the size of it as Baby MiH is growing (if the blanket can make it that far).
The only question now is which side I like best... Head or Tails.
All le Challenge #1 projects can be found here. The next theme will be announced on 15th April at 3pm.
