Pretty little crochet squares

Having completed my pretty rainbow blankets, I have now embarked on making a pretty little cushion to match my blanket (I might make matching ones for the girls' blankets, but not sure yet).
Once again, my inspiration comes from Lucy at Attic24. Her pretty little cushion is so cute and I wanted to use up the partially used balls of wool I have left over from our blankets.

Here is my WIP for you to see.
and here is the graph I made to follow.
Unlike Luce, I do not have the knack for getting random colours to work. I find it much easier to work from a diagram than having to think as I go, sort of like planning ahead. If I do the thinking first, the rest is a no-brainer and I can just hook to my heart's content.

If you want to have a look at Lucy's completed cushion, click HERE and it will take you to the post in her blog where it shows the work in progress and finished block of squares, ready to turn into a cushion cover, which you can see if you click HERE.

Thanks once again for the inspiration Luce :)

Take care and ciao for now,

this is going to be lovely when finished. I love your graph, takes the guesswork out of it all now, and you can enjoy the hooking journey.
