I am making a granny sqaure baby blanket. This will be my first ever project and it will be a gift. How should I put the peices together so that it the blanket will hold up to a baby. I need an easy way to do this. Help me please. Thanks

Hi Ashley (that's my step daughters name! lol) I love giving granny square afghans as baby gifts, they last a long time. :) I typically use a whip stitch to join my squares together. I'll sew together strips of them and then sew the long strips to each other. Then I crochet a border around the entire thing. :) Here is a tutorial on different stitches: http://www.crochetcabana.com/tutorials/joining_squares.htm
