Final Squares

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.


  1. What a great task to lay it all out - it will be stunning. Tropical Delight is beautiful, especially in those colours. They are all lovely, I'm looking forward to seeing the layout:) x

  2. Looking forward to seeing them all together. To me that's the most exciting part laying it all out. Some beautiful colours.

  3. I'm sure you will be having huge fun trying to work out the best layout! It will look fab when all stitched together.

  4. What a lot of work. Love them all.....except the one with the big cross over it. Just doesn't seem to blend in with the rest somehow. I'm sure you will decide where it should go though.

  5. What wonderful colourful squares, they are going to look fantastic all put together x

  6. Your squares are all so pretty Tropical delight is gorgeous well worth the hassle, looking forward to seeing the layout. :) x

  7. That is a great mixture of colours. I'm sure it will look fab.

  8. All of your squares are so pretty!! I look forward to seeing how you will join them all up and to seeing the finished result. Enjoy playing around with them! xx
