RE: Need help with my Weasley Blanket

Hi Everyone,
I have so many projects going at one time I think I am losing my mind YIKES!!!! So, I need some help getting one of them done.  I am currently participating in Ofenjen's Project of Doom over at HP Paper piecing and I am loving it :0) so that is my main project. On my down time from that project I really have to get moving on my Weasley blanket.  This blanket is the one in the later movies that is made up of all knitted squares.  I have 99 squares done and ready to be put together and that is the problem.  I want a nice flat seam.  All of my blocks are different colors. I have striped, solid and diagonal blocks.  I just can't decide on the method to use so, I need help, suggestions, advice and inspiration to get me going on this project again.  I know that if any group could help me it would be this one. I really want to cross one project off my list.

I thought I'd share with y'all the last block I needed to put together the CAL blanket.  If you'll remember, I did all 4 houses each month for a total of 48 blocks.  Well, with it being a Harry Potter blanket & all, I want to keep those magical numbers in the blanket.  So to make the blanket 7 rows of 7 blocks, I need 49 blocks.  So I decided to do a house unity block & try to mimick the borders I wanted to do once the blanket was joined.  This is the block I decided on.

The Hogwarts Bunch Blanket

Remember these guys from aaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago?!?!
Guess what....

Please scuse the blood red sweaty face - it’s a balmy 30+ degrees or so here in Australia and it’s a REALLY EFFECTIVE BLANKET~~!! Phew!!!

I still need to crochet a couple of rounds as the joins have slid up a little bit, but to be completely honest with you, trying to do that in 30+ heat is beyond a joke so it can friggin wait!!!
As you can see the thing is HUUUUUUUGE and covers my parents QUEEN SIZED BED quite comfortably!! Mine is only a double, so had to steal there’s for the photoshoot -_^!
I started this project on the 23rd July, 2009 and I gotta tell you, I am so stoked with it!!
I will have more photos and of course the all important tutorials on how I went about turning the panels into one massive arse blanket on my website in the next week or so if anyone is interested (http://totallee.net) -_^!
 I received my swap package from inknbeans this weekend!! woo!!!!
Sorry it took a few to get the pictures up.  I was going to do it last night but couldn't get the pictures off my phone on to my computer... I coudln't even find them (i'm sure it was my misdoing!)
