Shells Aflutter 12 Inch Afghan Square

I love creating unique afghan squares! This gorgeous Shells Aflutter 12 inch afghan square is the perfect accent to any afghan. You can make it the center of an afghan and build around it or make a bunch to join together into a larger afghan. This square is made with Vanna's Choice yarn in four colors but can be easily substituted for any other category 4 yarn in as many colors as you choose. This square is block #11 of the 2017 Moogly CAL!Shells Aflutter 12 Inch Afghan Square

Heart Pixel Art Square

Though a little time consuming, pixel art projects are so fun! I think I like most that it kind of resembles a quilt, but also that it uses my favorite join-as-you method – the Pull Loop Through Method! Makes for an easy join, and no worrying about how to assemble later – can’t say I enjoy sewing squares together. BUT! If you do, you could always make the squares separately, and then use the mattress stitch (or your preferred technique) to join them later. WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS SQUARE? It’s the perfect size for a 16″ throw pillow, use it as an afghan square, and build a blanket, add more squares all around to make a larger blanket, use it as a doily, attach it to a dowel rod, and hang it, use it as the star of the show for a sweater/top, even changing up the weight of yarn used will open doors!Heart Pixel Art Square
