Summer CAL Color Inspiration! 25+ Color Palette Ideas for Your Blanket

Good morning crocheters!  As we are gearing up for the Summer CAL (in case you missed yesterday's post, here's week 1, intro and supplies), I made this fun post to give you some crochet along much fun!

So many of you have been sharing your color choices and others have been asking about additional colors to be used...I though it would be lots of fun to put some additional palettes together.  Each one is 4 colors, the same number I'm using in the tutorials, the make nice and easy to follow along.  Pick and choose what you like, or use them as a springboard for your own inspirations!  Which one is your favorite?
