Crochet Blankie Reveal!

Yes, yes, yes, after two solid weeks of crocheting (my hands are still a little stiff and sore!), I have finally finished my first ever crocheted blanket.  I'm not going to show you the up close photos of my wonky edges and seams, but I am feeling pretty pleased with myself for managing to get this finished before my next round of foot surgery!

I love the eclectic, rainbow mix of colours I've chosen to use for this blanket, but felt that I needed a neutral border and seams to make my various squares feel like they belong together.  I made my life a little difficult by choosing to make my crochet squares using patterns (from a variety of sources) which weren't intended to go together and by choosing to make a double crochet (US terms) seam between each square, but I really enjoyed the whole process of picking patterns I liked and putting the whole blanket together.  So what do you think, do you like the clash of colours I've chosen, or do you need to have a proper colour scheme for your creations?
