Finally, here's my Big June Square. I liked doing this one! Forgive the poor photography, they both are full squares, even though they don't look like it!
And here's my August/Pavo. I did this one as an 8 incher though, instead of the full 12.
I tried the July, but it must have been too late in the evening, as I just couldn't grasp it. I hate it when that happens!
Speaking of of 12 inchers, I think I'll try the Ravelry July Square "More V's Please." Has anyone done that one? Also, I was looking at the recent issue of the Interweave Crochet at the library. They have a couple of nice 12 inch blocks in there. I had to photocopy them so I can try them out. I liked the Lotus Blossom pattern by Robyn Chachula and the Picture Frame pattern by Lisa Naskrent. I also made a copy of the Woven Arrowheads by Lily Chin, I thought it looked like it would make a good dishcloth.
I have five more 12 inchers and eight more 8 inchers to go on my aunt's blanket. I'm shooting for the end of the year. I think I can, I think I can! Then I think I may retire from the block CALs and join the granny a day (so I can make myself a colorful granny square blanket!) and also venture into vests and sweaters. Have to wait for additional $$ though, as I'd like to move from acrylic to cotton/linen blends.
I've also become obsessed with virtual quilting bees
