Here are my squares for the Block-a-month CAL for August.
The main square this month is called Cow Parsley Afghan Square. Isn't it pretty?
The filler square, that we voted on, is called Tropical Delight.
It's extremely beautiful but it was anything but a delight to make. The pattern wasn't clear or helpful. It was a frustrating project that was only excused because of the gorgeous end result.
The small square this month didn't appeal to me, so I substituted this one, called Sunburst Square. As usual I made four.
So that brought my total up to the equivalent of twenty four large squares. As I have decided to call it a day on this project, I needed one more square to be able to complete a 5 x 5 blanket. So I decided to use the See How They Run square.
A nice and straight forward one that looks quite effective.
So now the fun begins. I need to decide in which order to join the squares.
They're all so bright and colourful, it'll be fun to plan the layout. So that's my task for the next few days. See you next time, enjoy yourselves.
