    I like #4. I am going to use Red, White and Blue since those are the colors I have.

    Question: (approximately) how much yard will we need? I’d like to use up leftovers from a brightly colored Easter bunny to make a matching blankie for my grandson.

    I vote for #2 just because its fall!

    Some time ago i saw a lady doing an afghan just like this one. Instead of piceing the pices together (which i hate the most) she was crocheting the pices together as she crochet them. Any suggestion on how do this. I would think it would save time (which i do not have much of lately).

    Zontee says: Hi Karen, as Edie mentions in her current post, she will discuss this next week.

    I am going to follow along with this project, but I cannot facebook, twitter or any of that. I did get to face book once, but cannot remember my password, and it is just full of too much infor. I will follow along silently and hope for the best. I love the new start for the squares and I am excited about the join as you go.

    hmmmmmm ! I haven’t decided on a colourway yet…I have about 6 sample motifs. I scrapped my original idea due to lack of one colour. I have a huge stash, but very little plum. I tried one with a variated yarn and 2 other colours…it is nice but, Now I am thinking of graduating colours, then joining with a dark yarn to get a stained glass effect. I have done motifs in 3 colours of pink to red, baby blue to sapphire, pale yellow to tan, and mint green to hunter. I am going to take your advice and try to determine the best layout, probably starting with the lightest colours and working out in a circular design to the darkest. Any suggestions? anyone?

    Edie says: Oooo, the graduated colorway sounds lovely!
