Okay, I am hoping to have my four blankie squares done over the weekend, but I'm not sure how to go about seaming them. I ahve so far managed to complete projects that require little to no seaming, or they were at least made from the same yarn.

The blankie is being made from two diffent colored yarns, and I'll be seaming the squares in a pinwheel fashion, pink, yellow, pink, yellow. How do I sew them together? I'm afraid that if I use the pink yarn for seaming, then you'll see half the seam on the yellow yarn, and if I use the yellow yarn, then you'll see it on the pink side. (See where I'm going with this? ) Since the wrong side will be visible, how do I make my seam invisible considering at least half the time I'll be using the wrong color yarn . . .

Sugestions? Much apppreciated!!!!

what do you think of the idea of using a third color, like white, to make an obvious decorative seam stitch? I will be doing the same in a few weeks on my afghan. have fun! delta

That is a good idea, but I really want to keep the blanket to the two existing colors.

You could crochet them together with either color, or with a third color. This way your "seaming" would really be decorative joining, and you don't have to worry about right or wrong side. Plus, crocheting them together would be, imo, easier than seaming.
