I managed to wash wool between showers and get on with finishing the blanket. It's a bit bigger than I originally envisioned, 160 cm by 115 cm. The squares pattern is here
and the tutorial for joining is here
. The yarn is wool that I spun. Cream is the natural colour, the other colours I dyed in the microwave.
Quilting clips worked well to keep the strips together for joining:
Pins tend to disappear into the work and be difficult to find again. I don't want to post it off to my granddaughter with pins in it!

Thank you for sharing the link for the square.. I liked the bag too. Are you planning to make the bag next?
No it's not queen size, that's an optical illusion. No, I don't plan to make the bag.Delete
