I creates so many layout idea that it's crazy. I started with the square idea at the beginning and lots of people seemed to like the idea but i was still wasn't statisfied. I finally put together a nice straightforward rectangle shape but as I was putting the pieces together I put one piece in the wrong place and without having to rip out 10 motifs I refigured. I added red squared to give a pop.
My red motifs are my own designs and the cream is a modification of a square pattern. I also modified the clue 1 to a triangle to close the edges.
I want to thank crochetfanatic for the flower replacement for clue 6 and sonoma for the flat braid. I
I really enjoyed seeing everyone amazing designs and hearing people's successes and troubles. I just love all the different layouts and colour. I still can't believe some people were able to finish 2 afghans.
PS I hope I will be able to get out the cat hair I have two cats Fred and a long hair misty gray JJ.
What a sweet baby blanket! I love seeing baby blankets in dark colors - very different from the usual pastels.
