LeAnne Thanks again for letting me test this and help you out. I had a great time with it. I ended up making it into a pillow to go with a flag blanket I am working on. I will post a picture later this weekend.
Congrats on your new design! :hug

thanks, everyone, for the kind words!

I felt compelled to share it here, because it was for a Crochetville comfortghan that it came to be.

And, Tammy, I can't wait to see that 'ghan & pillow!

:ghug you all made my day!

Unfortunately the ghan I am making requires you to make 50 stars seperatly then sew them on. :rant:thair:bang:grumpy Since I hate sewing I most likely won't make another one of these ghans. I just finished making all those stars and I hope to get them all sewn on tomorrow. If not I will post a picture of the pillow seperately and post the ghan later.

Since I really hate to sew or weave a ton of ends, I really like this pattern. Only a few ends to sew in and no sewing on all those stars. :clap

Thanks again for letting me help you with this square. It was a lot of fun!!!!:hug

Since it is going to take me awhile to block and stitch on all these stars I decided to share these pictures for now. I used this square for the front of the pillow and then made another square in 3 stipes for the back. THe pics are not that great but here you go.
