At first my idea was to make the granny stripes in many different colors, but once that was done, it took away from the sunburst granny squares. Then my thought was to do all the granny stripes in one color such as red or purple but again that took away for the sunburst granny squares.
Since the sunburst granny squares are to be the focal point, the nine rows of granny stripes in cream worked out great and does not take away from the colorful granny squares.
Next week I will be adding some more color with some traditional granny squares or more sunburst granny squares.
If you are crocheting along you can find the pattern up to this point here
Thinking about covering some pillows for my next project.
Have a great week!
