What materials did you use? "I Love This Yarn"

What are you most proud of? The Logo. It turned out virtually identical to the real one! Took a lot of patience and several false starts.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient. The laying out can be extremely tiresome. I had to keep moving pieces around until I was happy with the balance of the piece. I made 4 squares of each color set-up, and added the center piece(equal to 4 squares) for an extra large blanket. I charged $125.00 and the customer was very happy with it! She even drove up from WV to pick it up, because she didn't want to wait for shipping!

I absolutely love this! I know you said that you free handed the WV logo, but do you have any suggestions for a person between beginner and intermediate on how to do the logo? I absolutely love this blanket, and I have searched and searched for a way to do a WV afghan/blanket for myself.

Great blanket but the right side of the V needed to be made a little taller.
