Just popping in to report that Square D is done!
Not only is Square D done, but I have joined Square C to D, and then joined the two completed blanket strips. So here are four squares joined together:
At the center where the four squares meet, I picked up a couple of extra stitches on each strip to join via the three-needle bind-off. There was a bit of a gap there because of seam between the two squares.
Alternatively, I could have carefully sewn up the little hole that was in the center, but picking up and binding off the extra stitches worked nicely. I plan to pick up an extra stitch or two at each seam end as I do the i-cord edging around the outer edge of the blanket.
