Noo noo our 1976 Camper Blanket from a 2011 pattern


needs a blanket for the bed and l did promise months ago to make one so my first bed cover is going to be for our beloved camper Noo noo...
this is the flower l am going to use, but still working on the colour choice
 simple solid center

I used a join as you go FOR JOINING THEM TOGETHER
I also used TWO DIFFERENT Round 2's for the Noo Noo blanket

12 PETAL FLOWER

FLOWER DETAILS...ORIGINAL BLANKET
6mm hook and two strands DK acrylic 

 FLOWER MEASURED: 8" diameter and l need to make it 40" wide x 54" 
long.

perfect to go over the seat when not up as a bed

Making 5 x 7 flower = 32 complete flowers.....a nice size to do
and l'm keeping the wavy edge
This is the camper so do l stay with the green and cream and a splash of orange or go for the rainbow of colour in the flags?...
