Scrap Granny Square Afghan-different sizes
Posted 28 May 2007 - 08:12 PM
I was wondering if any of you have a pattern, or a suggested site for a scrap granny square afghan with different sizes of granny squares in it. I recently noticed one on an Ebay auction, but can't seem to find anything like it now. It was all different colors and all different sized of granny squares all put together in one big afghan. Do any of you know of a pattern like this???? Or what book or site I might find it in?? Just obsessing over it now......

I may have to make a bunch of different sizes and put them together and see what happens!! Granny squares and quilting all rolled up into one!!! One of my grandmother's quilted and one crocheted granny squares, so this will be wonderful!!!!

Maggie I couldn't see the pattern on the website, could you link it here? I think that's okay to do...

I saw that one. I was thinking of one with a variety of squares in sizes, similar to wendy's but maybe even more colors and sizes.
I saw one in a magazine that was really freeform. It was a variety of shapes, too! Triangle, diamond, circle, and then whatever would fit between then. As well as squares. Beautiful afghan, but I don't think I could do it, but maybe...

Basically, you can use any squares you like, as long as the smallest ones can be put together in such a way as they equal the largest ones.
For a freeform version, a pillow pattern in a different book has you putting together shapes of differing sizes and sides by going around the outsides of each shape with Hdc to get them more uniform, then joining. The whole piece is then edged, again, in Hdc. You could do the same for an afghan, I'm sure.
When you put your pieces together, just make sure that they'll lay flat when you join them, then join away.
