Summer Garden Granny Square Pillow

So, there's this blog. It's written by Lucy. It's called "Attic 24."  I'm in love with it.  The colors.  The crochet.  It is all lovely.

A while ago, Lucy offered a pattern for her Summer Garden Granny Square.  I knew when I saw it that it was something special.  A few days ago, I decided to try it and I fell deeper in love.  I fell so much in love with the granny square that I decided to create a pillow (my current obsession).  The bonus:  It's my coworker, Alison's birthday tomorrow and it would make a great present for her. 

Just look at what I made:

See those Granny Squares?

These are the true colors.

Up close.

The back was a little different.

I'm so excited to see her fact tomorrow.  These pictures do not do this pillow any justice.  It is so lovely!

    Your pillow is absolutely gorgeous! I hope your co-worker is thrilled with her gift.

    I have yet to try a Granny Square but plan to soon.
