Beautiful! Agree with everyone else that the black on the outside really brings out the centre colours.
Marian, these are stunning! I'm happy to have been a small part of your inspiration :))
I was worried as my blanket came together that the black would be overwhelming, but I was so pleased with how it turned out that I'm now incorporating black into another blanket I'm working on. This could be a trend for the future!
Very beautiful and cleverly designed squares Marion. So "sophisticated" in design and quality X
Four CoM squares, much brighter red than the photo. I'd hoped to do more before the end of the month but life got in the way. Still working on them, though, so they'll be along later.
Beautiful stitches, Lesley. I don't think December is a very good month for deadlines for many people.
Terrific - these are patterns from the 35 Squares Make A Blanket booklet right......? - they're very neat!!
LOVE your squares, Lesley....just soooo neat!!!....and on my screen they are coming up a really pretty pink. .....probably due to the angle of the laptop screen. :))
I'm afraid I still haven't looked at the booklet, Karen - I keep telling myself I will, but haven't got round to it yet. (New Year's resolution? lol!) These are stitches I've used often in the past as part of Aran sweater patterns, and find they make interesting squares.
Four beauties Lesley :))
Beautiful squares Lesley, and your stitcing is so neat. In a nutshell ... perfect! ... xo
My Mother in Law always had an amaryllis on the go at this time of year. Thanks for the memory, Karla.
