Here are my fabulous motifs from deathbeforedishes! I tried to load them from school, but my computer froze, and I just realized that I left the envelope of motifs on my desk, so I can't provide the identification information until tomorrow, but I'll  update the post when I get home Smiley


Left: Front/Back Post DC- Twisted Treble Hexagon (page 16 of 20 to Make- Crocheted Granny Squares by Val Pierce)
Right: Lacy Motif- Floral Motif  (page 30 of 20 to Make- Crocheted Granny Squares by Val Pierce)



Left: Made w/3 Colors- Scalloped Circle (page 22 of 20 to Make- Crocheted Granny Squares by Val Pierce)
Right: Never Made Before: Medallion #8 (page 190 of Super Stitches Crochet by Jennifer Campbell)



Left: Flower Motif- Medallion #10 (page 192 of Super Stitches Crochet by Jennifer Campbell)
Right: Made w/3 Colors- Dog Rose Triangle (page 38 of 20 to Make- Crocheted Granny Squares by Val Pierce)



Left: Sender's Choice- Medallion #9 (page 192 of Super Stitches Crochet by Jennifer Campbell)
Middle: Made w/3D Elements Medallion #10 (page 198 of Super Stitches Crochet by Jennifer Campbell)
Right: Bonus w/stitch markers



They are fabulous, and I love how dimensional some of them are! And, as an added bonus, I don't think I have any of them already (I don't have the book the patterns came from, so I know I haven't made them Smiley ).

Plus, as an added super bonus, I got a lovely set of crochet stitch markers! I always use a paper clip, which sometimes falls out, so the lobster clasp style should be much more secure.

Thanks so much, deathbeforedishes!

Yay! Cheesy

They shipped well! I was worried that they would end up all whopper jawed and curled. So I am glad they look so flat still. Smiley

The parameters in which I was working were to not make any squares and to avoid white.  My stitch marker holder has a white flower, but that didn't factor into my 7 and 25". Wink  So it doesn't count. Cheesy

I am glad they arrived and that you like them!

Love the motifs!  Excellent work, deathbeforedishes!

I think if I had to choose a favourite, I'd go with the Dog Rose Triangle. ^_^

I received from fantasticmio today!



Granny Square with a twist. (This one is my favorite, how beautiful!) It's large too, so I am going to make it the center of my blanket!! My daughters can't wait for me to start piecing it together.



Motif worked diagonally and a flower motif.



A lacy motif and a motif she designed herself! (I could never do that!)



Motif made with three colors and a Tunisian Crochet motif.

I LOVE them all. I really wanted soft motifs in shades of purple and they are perfect!!

Thank you so much fantasticmio!

I'm glad you like them, dbd!

My favourite one to make was the big one, so I'm especially glad you enjoyed it!

As an aside, I'm looking for pattern testers for the baby-blanket-sized version of that motif. The pattern is *almost* ready to go, and I'm looking for folks to be finished their blankets by the end of July.  Send me a PM if you're interested!

I love the motifs you made for fantasticmio, deathbeforedishes! I think my favorites are the last one in each row (the spiraling motif and the Nursery Granny).

And, fantasticmio, the motfis you sent to deathbeforedishes are fabulous as well! I love the motif made with 3 colors- is it made like a Jacob's Ladder? 

I still only have 1 motif finished, but I've tested out 3 more (and I have the rest of them selected). Two of the tested motifs are keepers, but the third one curled quite a bit, which may be because I used two different brands of yarn, or because it needs blocking. If I can solve the problem by blocking it, I'll re-do it in the colors (purples!) for deathbeforedishes.

I spent my day in a waiting room, and it was quiet until one guy showed up and spent the rest of the day loudly yapping. He was the only one who was loud, and it made concentrating on motifs a challenge. Of the three I tested out, I had to start two of them over twice after getting at least half finished with each one. But, my goal is to get my grades done by tomorrow afternoon so I can work on motifs tomorrow night. I don't think I'll be able to send on Friday, but Saturday is a distinct possibility (Monday would be a definite, but I'd rather send on Saturday).

Thanks!

The "at least 3 colours" motif is a Jacob's Ladders one.  It's a motif I've designed to go in a blanket like so:


IMG3585 by fantasticmio, on Flickr

The goal was: a motif that has Jacob's Ladders that aren't at the corners, that get laddered up *after* joining.  I had to invent a new joining technique to allow for the ladders, but I'm mostly happy with how it looks.  I need to try a couple more colour combos.

The one I sent to dbd was a way to see if it looked better with multiple colours in each square - I like the striping, but the ladders pull the colours to two of the sides, so they aren't centred anymore... my OCD doesn't like that. Tongue

Here's a close-up that shows the texture better, but also the slight wonkiness. Tongue

Oooh! I love that blanket! You are so darn clever... will be waiting for the pattern notice on your blog Smiley

Last night, instead of grading papers, I had a bit of a brain crash (currently sipping a Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Coolatta to avoid another one), so I tested out another motif. It came out great in the test version and so it should whip up pretty quickly in the final version. Okay... away from the computer I must go to get the stack of projects graded. After that, it's a piece of cake!

Those are great motifs! I think the fpdc one is very similar to one that I made. The author of the book (the fantabulous Edie Eckman) said that it looks nice on both sides. One the one that I made, I prefer the side that shows the posts, but the one you got (assuming it's the right pattern) looks nice on the side you've got facing!

Lovely set of motifs! I think the daisy pentagon is my favorite, because it reminds me of summer. I also really like the one on the left in the second picture, and the rectangular one is neat looking, too!

I will be hopefully starting to look at the arrangement of motifs pretty soon. And then I can start to join them together!

The Daisy Pentagon is a free download on Ravelry.

If you liked this one...

(just making sure I'm pointing you to the right one)
...then that is the free pattern Ursa Major.  Be warned the pattern is vague in parts.

The rectangular one is Bars in Great-Grannies! by Judy Sajewski and Leisure Arts.

Hooray! So glad that the motifs arrived so quickly! And, I was worried that, in the mail, they'd revert to their messy unblocked state (I wasn't sure I had done it correctly... I've never blocked an acrylic motif before!).

And, pinkleo, thanks for the additional pattern info! I've saved both of those patterns, and I found a copy of the Great Grannies! book on Amazon... because it's the first day of my summer vacation, so I deserve a treat Smiley

More fabulous motifs! I am itching to get started on putting all of mine together, but my hand is injured, and I don't want to attempt any crochet until I go to the "Hand Clinic" on Tuesday. I'm bringing a hook and yarn with me to see if it's okay for me to crochet again. I have a lot I need to do!

Hooray! And, I'd ask for another round, but my wrist is broken so I can't crochet until it heals Sad  So much for my plans to get my motif blanket all stitched together by the end of July!
