playswithneedles, Your square reminds me of a smooth warm cup of hot chocolate with a marshmellow floating in the middle the perfect colours for a warm winter blanket. mmmm just lovely!

SewHelpMe, Oh dear! its been such a long time since I had to worry about any little four legged helpers in my house.

Esjay82, They are absolutely beautiful!  Shocked, I love the colours, gorgeous. Thank you for sharing the links I need more fillers.  Please post a pic of your lapghan when its finished.

How many fillers do you ladies/gents usually do? And how big do the blankets usually come out? I'd love to make one that's big enough to cover our Queen size bed, but is 24 (I'm doing the Ravelry and Craftster) squares enough?

I made an afghan out of 12" squares in January. I used a 7 X 7 grid (49 squares), and that plus the joining made it big enough to cover our queen sized bed top to bottom and side to side.

So, if you do the Craftster and Ravelry squares every month plus two additional squares (average one square a week), you'll be at 48. Then, you'll just need one more to make 49.

Of course, 7 x 7 makes a square afghan instead of a rectangle. A 6 x 8 configuration would be 48 squares (four each month).

Wow! You folks have been busy! Thanks for the pattern links! I've scavenged the links and tucked the patterns away for future inspiration Wink

I really do love all of the variety in the squares and it amazes me every time I see a new color combo how much it changes the look of the square!

Last year I did 2 of each month's squares and one filler for the middle -- 25 squares total, for a 5 x 5 square afghan . The afghan has migrated to being used on the top of our queen-sized bed on chilly nights. It does not drape over the edges but it does cover the top completely and is perfect for when you need that one extra blanket.

I am a bit late getting out of the starting box, but I finished January! It was a really neat, square, I loved it!
