Admittedly, I started this a while ago…(blush). I am kind of working on this in between projects, just kind of making squares when I feel like it. I had a bit of trouble at first with the pattern, which you can see here:
But I have gotten better at making them. Some of my earlier squares are a bit wonky, but I’m hoping it won’t matter once I put them all together with a nice border. So far I made 5 purple squares, 5 yellow squares, and 1 blue square.
Ok, I finally finished the 5th purple square. So, here are my purple squares:
So, I have:
- 5 light purple squres
5 yellow squares
5 blue squares
5 dark purple squares
20 squares so far. I want to make 30 before I start piecing them together into a blanket. I made the first orange one this morning, so…..9 more to go!
7/29/2014 Update; Finished the orange squares!
The square on the bottom has a dark brown peace sign, but it looks black.
Update 9/2/2014; I finished making all of the squares – 30 in all! I even finished edging one of the squares and started edging a 2nd square. I’ll take pics when I have the two squares sewn together. I hope this works!
9/18/2014 Update; I finally have more progress pictures. I’ve started edging a few squares and stitched together one row of squares. I’ve just started on the 2nd row:
10/20/2014 Update; I just finished stitching together Row 4 last night, and started on Row 5 this morning. Sigh….when will this be done????
As you can see, it needs to be blocked. I will steam block once I’m done stitching all the squares together and then do a final edging around the whole thing in, i dunno, maybe hdc’s?
