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
I must apologise to everyone for my lack of participation over the last 3 months. I haven't made a lot of squares, but have several that could go in the September theme. I just haven't had time to photograph them. I'll try hard to do it this afternoon and post them before the end of ......October!!!
Thank you Karen. I just feel that I have a million things and can't get round to doing any of them. Normally October is a quiet month for me, but the unexpected has taken over!!
Valerie I especially like the grays with blue shades ( on my monitor). They remind me of marble floor tiles!
I love this yarn. It's called Multico (for multi coloured) and they have it in all different shades. The top left and the bottom right in the second photo is the same brand.
Oh Valerie, such pretty squares!!! Especially LOVING all the pretty pink ones. :))
Now, I wonder why!!!!
Very well done Valerie - a smashing selection not only finished but photographed too - always a chore I get you, but worth it in the end to see work completed - and clear decks to start all over again..............lol.
