crafting with grandma . . . Granny-Square Bedspread!

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I'm working on a granny-square bedspread for my bed, so I thought I'd take a picture of a few of the completed squares and give you an up-date on my progress . . . so, here's the photo!

As for my "progress", well . . . I still have 343 more squares to go!!! This is a project which will take awhile, but when it is completed I am sure I will be very happy with it!

This is a very easy project . . . you just need to make granny-squares . . . a lot of them! You can use any combination of yarn and colors you like . . . as you can see, I'm going for an "Amish" look with lots of colors and with each square being finished with black. The finished bedspread will give my bedroom a wonderful "splash" of color! Bernat sent me some yarn to review and in the box they sent I found some of their Satin Sparkle Yarn  . . . in twilight (black), ruby and amethyst. I really love this soft yarn with just a bit of sparkle and am looking forward to seeing how this "sparkle" adds a fun touch to the finished bedspread!

What colors would you use if you made a granny-square bedspread?
