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.
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.
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.
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.
First off the bat, I was absolutely thrilled to see a square worked in rows and a solid color, because so many squares have been worked in the round, so I love the idea of changing it up so this blanket really looks patchwork-y. (Do you like that word? I just now invented it!)
Okay, I gotta be honest here: this week's square was my favorite so far. The fun part about this is that this week's square, the Fairy Wing Flower square, was designed by Journey Chanel Designs, the mastermind behind the Patchwork Mystery CAL! You can find the pattern HERE.
Its official, half of the patterns in the Patchwork Mystery Crochet-a-long have been released! I'm only slightly under halfway done, because I was originally planning to make 2 of each square, but now I've changed my mind and want to make 3 of each, so I'm just a few behind :)
