Moroccan Flower Blanket Pattern

img_0543Every year for Christmas my kids get a new blanket.  My youngest daughter loves the color red.  She is always running off with her older siblings red stuffed animals and toys.  So I decided to make her a flower blanket of red and yellow!

 

I made 4 kinds of flours using red, yellow, and white:
