This piece started with an idea to make a clean and crisp design with a modern flair. I was really inspired by the pink yarn that you see in the photos, because it is such a unique color and very well-suited to this project. It was begging to be missed with some greys.

The original Modern Patchwork blanket did not have any black accents, and as different as they look, I do love both!

Here is a close-up of the border. I chose an updated spin on the traditional granny stitch, and bordered it in that lush pink to drive the boldness home. 🙂

All folded up and ready for shipping!
