My Granny Square Blanket!! {And Bedroom Tour}

This past weekend, I FINALLY finished the granny square blanket for our bedroom. Yipee for me!! It's ginormous! It almost covers our entire queen size bed! I thought I would share some pictures of the blanket and also give you a tour of our new bedroom in our new house in Germany.

Here I've spread it out on the bed and you can see how big it is. I decided that every couple of years when we move, I'm going to let myself change up the bedroom. A couple new paintings, and new throw and some new pillows for the bed and I've got a whole new look. My mom gave us this beautiful white comforter for an early Christmas present this year so it creates a clean backdrop for easy changes later. Love the bright pops of color!!

All folded up. I'm in love with this blanket, it's so soft and cozy!!

Looking into our bedroom.

The beautiful peacock pillows are from Pillowmio Etsy Shop, and the heart painting is one I did last summer.

The blanket was the color inspiration for our room. See how it pulls it all together.

Our dresser.

Mini paintings I made for us. Our nicknames from high school.
I'm cupcake, he's muffin. We're nerds, we know! :)

The one lonely window in our bedroom, hence the poorly lit photos. I'm sorry haha!

Chest of drawers with our bird painting, another one by me, and my Grandma's old Avon bubble bath bottle and my elephant.

I adore this elephant. I got him for only a few bucks at a grocery store. He was marked down on clearance for their garden decorations at the end of the summer last year. Our family friend Nancy had one in her house and I knew I wanted one for mine too! He's so adorable!

And, so you can see how big the blanket is again, here I am snuggled up in it! Hahaha!

This was truly a labor of love and I'm so happy to be done with it! Now on to my next granny square blanket?!

Have you finished any fun projects lately? What are you working on?


Pin It!


  1. Oh my I love your blanket and the lovely colour choices along with the white. Your bedroom is lovely! :) What is your next project going to be? x

  2. Wow your room is so pretty! I can't believe your hubby let you use pink. I love the blanket and all your personal paintings. Looks so homey!

  3. I love it!!! The colors are the best what a pretty bedroom :)

  4. Ooo, I love your granny quilt! I want one, and wish I had the quilting talent (and patience) you have. Please do make more!

    Also, you bedroom is sooo cute! Love the colours :D

  5. Oh it is beautiful! Everthing in your room is so cheerful and "sweet" did a wonderful job!

  6. I absolutely love it! I was just blogging about crocheted blankets and afghans the other day. It looks gorgeous. Was it hard to do? I was wanting to try and make a crocheted throw, but didn't know how difficult it would be....

  7. Such a great accomplishment! Lovely and functional too. I find the wood traveling on the wall to the ceiling beautiful art as well.

  8. Thanks for all the lovely comments on our bedroom. My husband is completely ok with the fact that there is pink in there. He's such a great guy and puts up with my girlyness, actually I think he likes that about me.

    And to answer The Soul Anchor's question "Was it hard to do" YES! I calculated up that it averaged to be about 90 hours of crocheting to make this blanket. I stretched it out over about 7 months. I'm not that dedicated and plus we moved. So fun though! I'm seriously thinking of doing another one. Any takers?? :)

  9. Nice room. Love the blanket & the cute pics.

  10. wow, the blanket looks amazing now that it's ready!! :)

  11. Awesome blanket, and what a cute bedroom! :)

  12. I love your room, its very cozy. I think the names are cute. That heart painting is very attractive.. and the elephant !!♥♥♥♥ I think its darling.
