In preparation for my part alongside the Fushion Blanket Team with Corey and Cindy I experimented with more blocks than I dare show you. After crocheting a block as shown in the original pattern, I decided it was way too fiddly for my level (or lack of) expertise. I developed something easier for myself. Why create stress (which is way too easy for me to do)? I lost patience with myself for having such a difficult time settling on the details for my block. How many stitches should I have? Should I round the corners or square the corners? Tight crochet or loose crochet? What I landed on is what you see in the above photo. No more changes. I'm sticking with it for better or worse. I've been married for 32 years so I guess I'm that kind of person. A great thing about this project is that you can make your blocks in a way that reflects you! If you've seen the blocks posted on Flickr you know exactly what I am saying!
My block details:
Lila Tueller Bohemian Festival fabric (that Cindy brought to me from Quilt Market)
Tahki Cotton Yarn purchased from fabric.com
Royale Fashion Crochet Thread (size 3) doubled for blanket stitch (Joann's)
Double crochet all around
In a future post I'd like to share a few of my favorite crochet blogs. I don't want to get too longwinded. And when it's 105 outside, it's time for a nap!
