Melissa's blanket was first. Hers is done in a pattern of stacking blocks. When it is laid out, it gives the illusion of a block tower. This is one I've done before. But this time I worked it up using brilliant shades of crayon box colors. And Melissa's personality is more bold than either of her sisters.

Abi's was done in a completely different style. Her blanket is soft and delicate. It's white with pastel pink, green, yellow, blue, and purple. Hers is done in rows and the colored rows have little baubles or popcorns on them. This blanket also has tassels. Abi is the child who is sensitive and seems to be quieter than her older sister.
Kaylee's blanket was probably one of the hardest I've ever made. I'll actually do a review of it in a separate blog post. The pattern has it listed as easy. And for the most part it was easy. At least as far as stitches went. But it was still hard. This one, like Abi's used both white and colored yarns. The bright bright bright rainbow colors of red, pink, orange, light orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple all came together in one package. So that was different. It also had some squares that were similar to Melissa's blanket and squares similar to Abi's. But it is very very bright and cheerful and despite needing to figure out a way to keep the black cat off of it while I was working on it, it turned out beautifully. Kaylee's still too little to really have a distinct personality. But she seems to be pretty happy-go-lucky.
So this trio of sisters each have a rainbow blanket. They play with them and everything. And of course their Mama loves them. So does their Daddy. :)
