I can't believe you have no comments on your pretty squares so I shall be the first on this one! Lovely little filler squares that look gorgeous in a single shade and absolutely what I've been looking for to 'tone down' an afghan my Husband and I are making together.

Thank you very much for your generosity in sharing your work.

Thank you Pam, I appreciate it. I designed this sq with a few other awesome designers too. I would love to see the afghan when you both are finished.
