crochet mood blanket: march recap

Hello April, I could not be happier to see you!
The crochet mood blanket 2014 is still going {kinda} strong over here.  I fell a little off the wagon mid-month and had to play catch-up, but March is complete:

 I also figured out a double crochet edging for each month's blocks and decided to use the same Flat Braid to join the months together.
1) Join border yarn to any chain3 loop space on bottom side of panel.
2) ch4 (counts as first dc, ch1), 1dc in same space; 1dc, ch1, 1dc in next space.
3) Continue on working 1dc, ch1, 1dc in each chain3 loop space.
When two squares intersect, 1dc in first color, ch1, 1dc in next color.
At corners: ch2, 1dc, ch1, 1dc in corner space; ch2 and continue on as step 3 above.

At side where two panels will connect (joining one panel to the next): 1dc in chain3 loop space, pull hook out insert into opposite side in ch1 space between 2dc in same loop, put loop back on hook, ch1 and 1dc in same space.
1dc in next loop, pull hook out, insert hook into ch1 space, put loop back on hook, ch1, 1dc in same space.
At intersecting colors: 1dc in first color loop, pull out hook, insert in ch1 space on opposite side, put loop back on hook, ch1 dc in next color loop.  Continue flat braid join along side, and finish border on bottom side.
To finish: join with a slip stitch to 3rd chain in beginning ch4 and fasten off.

January and February joined
