I added a row of sc or hdc around each square to make them all the same size and then connected them together with sc. The next step was to hdc around the whole blanket to make the blanket even for the edging.
The edging is made with 3 dc clusters-the same ones you use for a granny stripe blanket, with a splash of color in between. The color rows are sc between clusters, ch 3, and sc between the next set of cluster sts. The final row is a sc, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sc in each ch 3 space around, this gives it the frilly look.
Here are a few photos of the blankets made with some of the squares:

If you are not already hooked up with Ravelry, you should be, It is a community of crocheters and knitters, who share patterns and advice. Oh, did I forget to say it is FREE to sign-up!
It has been great to see the different ways people use granny squares to make blankets. I know these blankets will go to people who will really love them!
My next blog post will be the final installment of the multi-stitch CAL. I hope those out there doing the blanket will send me photos so I can post them on my blog.
Have a good week!
