Think about the days of me and you

;) – Then remembering will have to do

(thanks for the music today Ma. All I need is another excuse to cry in the middle of the day)

I finished up a big project today.

25-squares-of-summer

Perty idn’t she. This is the sample blanket for the crochet block of the month class I’m teaching from July – June of next year at Webs. Once I really sat down to work on it things moved along pretty quickly.

There are detail shots of the squares on my flickr page.

Its pizza night and I have a basket full of laundry to fold and I still have to go pick the Hubby up from work. Have a great weekend, chickadees!

UPDATE! 11/4/12

Since so many people contact me about this blanket, I thought I’d update this post with the details.

I used Jan Eatons 200 crochet  blocks

I made 13 of the Traditional Granny blocks #18
and one each of the following squares:
#20 Colorful Bobbles
#22 St. Petersburg
#30 Shell lace
#38 Dahlia
#39 Gavin’s Stripes
#71 Star Flower
#74 Seville
#76 Granny Stripes
#95 Kingcup
#145 Chocolate Box
#161 Daisy Chain
#189 Willow

Using Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

2 skeins Orange, 2 skeins Red, 3 skeins Royal, 3 skeins Gold, 3 skeins Fuschia, and 5 skeins of Lime. The blocks were all joined together as I added the last round on the granny blocks.

  1. I LOVE THIS! The colors are right up my alley. Maybe when I’m rich I can hire you to make one for me. It’s perfect Sara! In fact, ‘m going to print it out and hang it on my inspiration wire.

  2. I love, love, love this blanket. Wish you lived in my neck of the woods so I could take your class. That is a beauty! Brava!

  3. Hey, found you by accident. I have 2-4 crocheting homeschool kids (the boys are sometimes interested, the girls always). I’ve got to show them these pix.

    I’m curious about the square with the pom-pom thingies. How do you do those?

    Love the knitting chicken fabric in the Mar 26 post. So cool.

  4. What a fun project! Colorful, accessible, and each block a challege. Your students will surely enjoy! You just keep inspiring me – I can imagine a variation of this using crochet cottons.

    Have a wonderful week. Spring is coming (and daffodils in my back yard!)

  5. This is absoultely amazing. I have a teenage daughter that would freak out if she could see the beautiful bright colours.Which patterns did you use for the different blocks?
