Our Colour of the Month (CoM) is BLUE. I had many colours in my stash that were a questionable blue, but on googling 'blue' I discovered a site listing 144!! I'm all good.  :)) Here is a little sample from the site. I'm sure we all must have a little in our stash.

Please remember the importance of our Plain Jane squares in the blankets that are created. Perhaps make some in blue or a colour/s inspired by something in your landscape or somewhere you have visited. Have fun...and please share with us.

The colours in this blanket made me think of Scottish thistles so I'm putting it forward to represent Scotland in our Around the World trip.

This is beautiful Patricia.    I married a Glaswegian at Loch Lomond 20 years ago, and had thistles in my hand-held bouquet so this blanket made me smile and sigh, thank you ❤️

Oh wow, Karen! I'm so pleased I brought back such happy memories for you. Would you post a photo for us?

November 2001 Loch Lomond.    I have thistles in my little bouquet.  Stuart is wearing his family tartan kilt, and the older gentleman is his father Harry.

How beautiful, Karen. I'm glad I was nosy enough to ask for a photo! What a romantic location.

Wonderful photos, Karen!

Thanks for sharing, Karen.   The photos are stunning, as is the family.

Dare I say that you youngsters really know how to do it right! 

(since my husband and I had our 49th anniversary this year)

Another C2C masterpiece, Patricia, beautiful colours, and I can just see those thistles, and heather on the Scottish hills too.

Exactly like the thistle colours I remember. A beautiful blanket Patricia. 

SUPER colours in your blanket, Patricia. The colourways are just gorgeous!!

We have thistle over here, but I don't know if it's the same. It would sometimes grow in my father's grazing paddocks on the farm and was seen as a weed, as I think the cattle/sheep couldn't or wouldn't  eat it.

Stunning colours, Patricia, a beautiful blanket.

Oh, the Scottish Thistles blanket is charming, Patricia.   IF that is what the hillsides of Scotland look like, they must be breath-taking.
