DIAGONALS ARE FOREVER AND SASSY STRIPES
hosted by Karen Gordon
Hi everyone!! To me this theme screams "Anything Goes".
Haven't we all got some random oddments of wool that have been long buried in our wool stash? In my eyes the bigger the clash of colours the better. Let's make our squares really ping and zing so they stand out and make a plain blanket into a unique piece of cosy art.
Diagonal or stripey squares are the answer to our stash spares!!
Going back over past photos on the forum you can see such wonderful examples of these squares
Since being asked to host this theme , I have created some of my own diagonals , using up the odds and ends
So if you have never made a diagonal square , now it is the time to have a go, you can have so much fun with this.*****WARNING**** they are very addictive :))
can be found in the KAS Pattern Book
Here are a few more examples that I have worked on to fit this theme. Since my first ever diagonal square around 18 months ago it has become my square of choice for small left over balls, variegated and random mix wools. It is just such a versatile way of "going off map" and doing your own thing.
Quite simply - you can never fail whatever yarn or colour you use. I'll try very hard to keep an eye on any ideas and examples that are posted throughout this theme .....so let the colourfest clicking commence !!
Wow! You've been busy, Karen. These are just gorgeous ...as your diagonals always are :) xo
These are all so beautiful. I love what happens with diagonal stitching.
A great intro, Karen. :)) Thank you for hosting this theme.....and Sharon for posting it. :))
LOVE all your diagonals, especially the bottom set....so sweet and pretty. :))
Smashing work - I do like a bit of variegation Joan. Very neat too I have to add.
I love these Joan. Such bright, bold colors I this yarn. xo
