Granny Squares

I have an idea of something to make using granny squares, so I sat down and came up with this easy granny square pattern.  While these squares may not be good for what I had in mind, I still really liked them.  I had fun figuring it out and hope you like it, too.  They would make a great throw/blanket. 
I made the granny squares using 2 colors.  I made one in Peacock and white, and one in Peacock and black.
