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!

I got my beautiful motifs from pinkleo a couple days ago! It's been crazy around here and I apologize for not posting pics sooner. Also, my camera died so I am stuck using my phone camera for awhile.

3D--Fantasy Garden
Pentagon--Daisy Pentagon
Bobble--Ursa Major
Back Loop--Maltese
New to me--Bars
Flower--African Flower
Sender's Choice--Hexagon









Thank you pinkleo, they are great!

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
