Pillow cover : front completed!!!

From a little tin box that is in my crafty room, a couple of days ago, I've collected out some (36, precisely!!) little granny squares, that I've crocheted in May (here) with big projects in my mind....Well, the projects are still there, but I wanted to use these squares for a classic crochet craft : a pillow cover!!!



So, I started to adjust the position for each square and when I was happy with the pattern, I chose a 4mm hook and white yarn to sew horizontally the squares together, joining them with a chain of single crochet stitches









When finished the white horizontal lines, I started with the vertical ones, alternating orange, pink, yellow, hot pink and red yarns !!!







Then, I added a border (3 stripes in sc, red, green and blue) to give a neat finish to my colourful cover..







Well, what do you think???
I'm so delighted with this burst of colours, and you??
