Design Wall Monday

 Not a lot of sewing machine time this week so nothing is on my design wall.  I've been finishing things instead. I mended a pair of pants for Taylor, made her a big hair bow and sewed a little bit on my log cabin. A very little bit. Other than that, this fabulous sewing machine has been quiet.

What's really on my design space is this afghan I am going to finish. I'm working my way through the last of the squares.  I think I need 22 more.  Last night I did a count and sorted the last of the squares. I'm making 15 of each colorway.  It's nice to sit out on the deck and work on this.

I played in EQ7 a while back to give myself an idea of how this will look when completed, but I only used 4 blocks in the mock up. I'll be using 6 different squares in the afghan. I've only seen this on a tv show. I loved it, stopped the show to take a picture of it to make my own. It will finish to be about 70" x 76". A very nice sized bed throw.

Your afghan design looks cozy and will be a warm welcome during the winter!!

I haven't done crochet for YEARS, let alone Granny Squares. But I can see how that would be another great way to keep your hands busy wherever you are. And you wind up with something beautiful. Good going.

How clever you are to use EQ for designing your crochet. I love the colors. Don't forget to post when you are done!

Nancy said...

I agree with Bonnie: you are clever and creative!

Great idea to use EQ for the Afghan design. Your pretty Blue machine looks so nice there sewing Log Cabins.

I haven't crocheted in years and I never would have thought to use EQ to design an afghan. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished afghan.
