A problem with triangles

I'm working on these triangles, but I've realised that they pose a bit of a problem. You see, they are 60 degree triangles, which means that they want to make a kind-of circular shape when put together, instead of the square I wanted to make; it's a blanket for Tony's niece.

I don't know what to do now. Well, I kinda know; I think I have to unravel the triangles. Oh, my pretty triangles, I can't bear to do it! But I suppose I'll have to, if I want to actually make a blanket.

So now I have to figure out what to do instead. Either I make four large granny squares, which can be taken apart and used for cushions once the niece outgrows her baby blanket. Or, I make one big granny square, or two, to make a rectangular blanket.

Of course, I could make a circular blanket, maybe using one of the ripple patterns in the Jan Eaton book Tony's sister + family gave me for my birthday.

Ack, so many possibilities! Let me know what you think!
