Fit for a Queen (...sized bed)


Here it is...finally...I completed the next round!

It took a while but I am done. 




It is a (81" X 81") queen-size blanket. 




My Gaby loves it (as you can see).  She works in the "quality department."  Testing all my projects for durability.
I have just pick whatever I have on hand and incorporated it into this enormous project of mine.




I did the best I could with the photography. But I wish you guys can see this live...it's so artistic and expressive.
Very heavy and warming.




Here is the newly added round...I used the pink, aqua, green and blue to try to balance out the powerful colors on the previous round.


This project is still a work in progress. i have to elongate the square so that it is a rectangle.
I wish I can share it all with you guys but as you must imagine, I have to create the squares and then sew each and every one of them on...BY MYSELF! So it takes time.

But I have to admit this project has been fun and therapeutic (for it has shown me how to be patient and enjoy the journey of art).

Happy Mid-week,

Diamonds are forever...












Diamonds are forever...they take forever to make...but I love the end result!  And as you can see so does my Gaby.

I have to make 4 small squares to make 1 diamond... sewing each together.

It's time consuming but if you follow the same pattern for each. it all lines up beautifully.

With all the color options out there...you truly can come up with something gorgeous. I really don't have a color scheme...I'm just trying to get rid of my stash so I can fill it up again (you stashers know what I mean).

Hope you like it...I do.  It measures 63" x 63" so far.  I have to try to figure out how to convert my square into a rectangle...so I can use it as a bedspread...but we'll see what i come up with.

Hope you guys have a great weekend.

Have Fun & Be Happy making...anything,
Mayra

Block by Block...Square by Square. I will get there!

63" X 63" so far



more squares



20" X 20"

I have been working on this for a while...I love projects like this because I can freestyle and take my time with them. I did make a pillow for a king with a crown full of jewels and everything...it was also very fun and very dear to my heart.

I'm alternating solid squares and "diamond" squares. The diamond blocks are the most time consuming but in front of the tv...i knock them out without too much effort.
These squares are 9" X 9". And there really is no pattern or color chart that I'm following for it...I'm just busting my stash and having fun.

By now this project measures 63" X 63". It's growing and I think it's a keeper...because I usually make projects like this and give them away.

Well, I hope you guys are having a wonderful week. It's hump day...but we will make it!

I'll keep you posted and updated.

Happy Hooking,
Mayra
