This was in 1991 ( I think), way before I started sewing quilts. But even then I liked quilts and I suppose that's why I picked up this crochet pattern booklet..."Quilt Afghans".
I began working on the one pictured on the right side in the middle..."Pinwheels and Stars".
|these are all crochet|
Looking back, I believe I chose the most hideous yarn color combination imaginable...bright peach and seafoam green! At the time I thought it was really pretty.
Fortunately for my sister - I never even finished it.
The squares that I finished have been hanging around for all those years. Sometimes I would come across them while organizing, but put them out of sight-out of mind....until recently, when my quilt group started making quilts for Project Linus.
I read that the organization can use any kind of blankets. I pulled out those finished crochet squares and had enough to put together a little green and white afghan.(not using the original layout). I haven't crocheted in quite awhile so it was slow going at first.
Next, I will lay out those peach squares you see piled up on the side and see what kind of arrangement I can make with them. I have plenty of yarn left so I can add some borders to it too.
I am so glad to find a use for these, and the world will be a better place without that peach yarn and green yarn together in the same afghan!
