Thank you Anne for this challenge. I have finally completed these squares because of it.
Last spring I was given a box with a partially made blanket plus the remaining yarn to finish it. I pulled the blanket apart and rolled the balls. I started making the small diamond centres and in July finished one square for the August /Africa challenge.
Since family was arriving for August, the box was put away in the yarn storage area and promptly forgotten. In October while rooting through the stash, I came across the box but we were into the Christmas challenge with its reds and greens. Back into the corner for the box. In late January,while looking for yarn for the transportation challenge, I found the box again !!! This time the squares are finished because, after all, the pattern is called 'Wheel Spoke' :-)
The squares are a combination of 2 patterns : Wheel Spoke and Diamond in a Square. These patterns are available in the KAS Pattern Book [see tab above]
The colours are orange, chocolate brown and cream. The camera didn't get the colours right....again !!

I don't imagine the squares will stay together for a blanket but it was fun putting them down that way :-)

Great job, Linda!!  Third time lucky for that box and just PERFECT for this month's challenge.

Only one word - WOW!

Wow Linda, this blanket is AWESOME!  I love the colours and patterns in it.  There is also a good chance the blanket can be put together as shown in your photo.  I have done quite a few 'complete' blankets and sent them over along with a photo and note to say I hope they can be sewn up as shown.  I recently saw 2 of them in the KAS Blanket album and Lorindaa and her team had put them together as shown.  One of them is pictured in the album all sewn up with the photo I sent laid on the bottom corner.

Wonderful blanket in great colours and patterns. I too hope that it stays as a whole.

Linda if these are shipped together, with a photo attached of this, I see no reason at all why they couldn't stay together like this, in fact it would make the ladies' job of sorting and matching much easier...this one is ready to go.  And what a beauty it is! Wow, you did all of those in a month or less???? Awesome, girl, you are seriously awesome.   As for the design...isn't it striking?  What a triumph this is. DEFINITELY send them this photo. I bet they'll use it. Love, love, love this and Anneke is right, is this ever African with it's striking graphics.

Wow! Beautiful. A bit of African colors, reminds me of the beautiful designs made in Africa. When you include a request letter, I think these squares will stay together. xo

Wow - these are gorgeous!  What an incredible amount of squares Linda! The bright contrast of the orange, cream and brown colours will surely be favourites in SA :-)
