Squares are nice because you can take them anywhere with you and do a little at a time. I made all of these squares while watching my sons in dance class.

I have another one started that I work on when they are at baseball practices.

7' wide is extremely daunting. Good luck with both!

Exactly! They are easy to take anywhere. I have a bag with sections of an afghan I started for a friend. I plan to finish it someday, but I lost the pattern (argh!) when I moved.

I need to find it online again and start again. It didn't take long to do a section at all.

And the 7' is, yes. I don't know what caused me to make it that wide. It takes me two evenings (I work slow, because I get distracted) to do a row.

I've been thinking of making an afghan for a friend's wedding. I want to do squares but am not sure of the pattern. This inspires me to do one with a flower motif.

For me the color scheme is the deciding factor on how to join. If I have a lot of different colors I do an "invisible" seam. If I only have a couple colors I join like you did-the seam compliments the border.

I'm glad you went pink.  Smiley
It reminds me of gingham squares that way.  It's a gorgous pattern - very beautiful and intricate the way the flower pops out like that.

It is a very pretty design, and, buckynbaby, you can find a pattern for a square like this in bev's country cottage, (bev's soft flower square). Personally, I prefer to join the squares while crocheting rather than have a marathon joining session at the end. I usually follow one of two systems, one of which is Priscilla's flat braid join, which results in a lovely lacy design between the squares.
