Nuts About DNA Afghan – Squares 21-25

Welcome back to the, Nuts about DNA afghan series.
Way back in September 2017 I started the journey of making 144 squares for a blanket that would fit a double bed floor to floor.
This blanket/throw/bedspread would be a present for my wonderful Mum.🎁
On new calculations I only need to make 110 squares and a few days ago I finished the vey last square.
