I made this in earth tone colors for my grandson so no pink, violet or peach but red ,dark blue , hunter green and gold. I had a harder time with the mattress stitch.

This is a reallly sweet blanket and would make a beautiful gift. I would prefer it with every other block in each strip done in the main color. I would not call this an easy pattern because it involves sewing strips together and picking up stitches on the edge. Those are more like advanced beginner or intermediate level knitting, in my opinion.

show me how to correctly sew strips together

how do you sew the strips together?

strip 2 only lists 6 color changes rest have 7

What does M1 mean??

M1 is make one-you make a stitch by picking up the strand lying betwen the next two stitches and work it through the back of the loop to create a new stitch. hope this helps.
