Coming Along Nicely

Today Block 21 will be released for the 2015 Moogly Afghan CAL only four more to go I can't believe it, I'm just dying to get these blocks all sewn up into a blanket.  

Here are the last three that I made starting with the last one...

Block 20
Fan Dance by Dolly Plum

This is one of the alternative choices the one chosen French Corner although it's a beautiful square I don't want any corner squares in my blanket so I chose this one instead which I think is amazing.  
I found the first rounds very easy but got very lost later on, my stitch count was way out, I found the instructions very confusing and hard to follow, I'm not blaming the designer because others have made this and found it very easy, I'm sure it's my feather brain that finds it very hard to concentrate sometimes.  

The only way I was able to complete it was by looking at pictures of the block and trying to figure it out, it was with a huge sigh of relief that I finally got a finished result, not perfect by any means but it will do just fine for me. 

Block 19
Dream Circle by Carolyn Christmas

I think this one is just beautiful too, you know there are some very talented designers out there and well done to Tamara for finding all these beautiful blocks. 

 I enjoyed making this one and I was able to follow the pattern quite easily I love it!

Block 18 
Colorburst Afghan Square by Christine Mullen

I enjoyed making this one a lot, it was super easy, some of the people following this CAL were a little apprehensive about making a square from side to side instead of in the round because it's harder to control the size but maybe I was just lucky because it was one of the few that turned out a perfect 12 inches square.  I loved the pattern for this and I have a feeling I may be using it to make a blanket or even a hat or scarf.

Now I'm off over to the Moogly blog to see if number 21 is published yet. 

See you soon. :)
