i made this afghan about a year ago.  in this pic, it's spread out on my full sized bed.  the pattern was really boring, but it was more an experiement on changing color.  it's pretty crazy, but that's okay.

Here's the back side.  I joined using the slip stitch and single crochet.  Whenever I needed to tuck in loose ends (bc i hate weaving them in), I used sc.  I laid out and approximated where I wanted everything, then joined in between single squares.  then I took my long strips and joined them in one long go.  then I bordered the whole with 1 or 2 rows of single crochet.  (Sorry this took so long, guys!)

I LOVE that and the fact you were willing to experiment. Experimentation makes it more of an art instead of just a craft.

Plus, it looks like a quilt.

I like it! And I'm impressed you sewed all the pieces together. I have popcorn cans (like you get at Christmas) full of granny squares that I'm going to sew together. Someday!
