Chloe's Blanket-o-Love

I knitted this for my newborn niece. It was completed last summer, but I'm just now posting.

 This was my own design and I enjoyed knitting it... for the most part. I started by knitting in garter stitch, and randomly knitting rectangles and squares of various sizes into the blanket. I loved the way the blanket developed organically. When it was finished I cut out a million bunch of hearts from some fuzzy green fabric, and stitched them into the squares & rectangles. (This was the part I liked less - it was so tedious!)
I ended up adding one pink heart, just to add some interest & break up all that green & white.
