Patchwork Mystery CAL Week Twelve

Wow, the last pattern is here already. The past 12 weeks have really flown by somehow! Now the task of joining all 36 squares is at hand. (Why did I punish myself by making 3 of each square? Oh, yeah. Because they were so fun to make!) This week's square is called the Jacob's Ladder square by Jo's Crafty Hook. Find her pattern HERE. I had to frog a couple of times at first because a) using the recommended hook size, this was the one square that turned out much bigger than all of the others. (My squares have all...

Still, this year I sort-of made her a present. I purchased some Lion Brand Comfy Cotton yarn a few weeks back. By chance, the colors in stock that day were red, white and blue. I started thinking of what kind of...

Patchwork Mystery CAL Week Eleven

Patchwork Mystery CAL Week Eleven

Week Eleven, y'all. Can you believe it? I now have 33 squares completed, ends woven in and blocked. As soon as I finish the last 3 next week, it will be time to join them all together. Joining squares is what has made me say, "never again" at least 6 times already, but I love the look of a patchwork blanket. That's probably why the quote "Never Say Never" exists. (And yes, I am humming the song from An American Tail right now, which unfortunately shows my age.) This week's square is called the Phoenix Square, designed by Stardust Gold...

Week 10 is complete! This one is called the Rip Tides Square, designed by Sarah Thompson from Rich Textures Crochet. Find this week's pattern HERE. There is a lot to love about this square. For one, it is another one that is worked from the bottom up, rather than center out. Don't get me wrong, I have loved the center out ones too, but in a project like this, I am loving the occasional square that isn't made in the same direction. I also love the texture of this one. It looks so complicated, but it was actually very easy...

Week 9 is over already! This week's square was so much fun, and not just the making of it. This square was a collaboration effort from 2 different designers! Isn't it gorgeous? This square is called Belle's Enchanted Garden, and the name could not be more fitting. The center was designed by Marianne Hamill from Sunset Knots. You can find her HERE. The outside of the square was designed by Desiree Krahn from Tangerine Door Creations, and you can find her HERE. I just love the story of how this collaboration came together. Now, I dare you to tell me...
