Thanksfor the heads up re the border colours its meadow that I used, but Lime is very similar so either would work. Will make the change on the tutorial so it’s consistent… thank you! Lucyxxx Sent from Windows Mail From:Typepad Sent:‎Saturday‎, ‎15‎ ‎August‎ ‎2015 ‎12‎:‎31 To:Lucy Attic24 A new comment from “Mary” was received on the page “Harmony Blanket” of the blog “Attic24”. Comment: Beautiful!!! Just finishing up Cosy and might need to make this one next. Is round 6 of the border Lime or Meadow? The list of colors for the border says Meadow but down in the instructions indicates Lime. Thanks for another great pattern!
