More Color Joy

Doing granny squares has me singing with color joy. I wanted to share it with you. It is a wonderful expression for me. I get to change colors three times in each four inch square. Joy, joy, joy!!!!!!




Is it a blanket or is it a coat? I haven't decided yet, except that it looks amazing in my living room. I'll show you a picture soon. My living room is monochromatic....orange! These colors are like a carnival that wakes up the whole room! But it might be fun to WEAR the carnival....

Hi Beth!

I absolutely LOVE it...you made my day!ahhh...i LOVE color!

That's what I want to learn to do .. knit and crochet and make colorful squares into a blanket. Hmmm but perhaps for now i should get to my quilting instead! LOL

Summer went by too fast. I still hope to connect with you in the near future :)

happy day!

How are you going to connect them?
I have oodles of granny squares and have no idea how to get a smooth seam or border to connect them all toghether.
Lovely pieces!

Oooo! This is so much fun! I wouldn't be able to decide either. Can't wait to see it finished. Can you believe it? - I've never done a granny square. The shame. Are they pretty easy/quick?

I like the design and playful colors. Will you please show us how to make them? Take care.

I know! I love! I have been doing the very same these thing these days. We had a granny square afghan when I was little so it has been on my learn to make list for a very long time!

I am still having trouble figuring out exactly where to attach the new color without it making this weird little color bump (which is kinda driving me crazy)... any advice?

Your squares are so wonderfully colorful!

I think they look truly gorgeous. Either worn or lighting up a room.
