WIP: Earth, Wind & Fire: Mitered Squares Blanket
I purchased the Mitered Crosses Blanket pdf pattern over at Rav. I love the design, and the $5 pdf goes to charity, mainly Japan Relief for all of 2011. Y'all might know how to do mitered quarters, but the directions tell you how to connect 4 of them together, and also how to set yourself up for the 3-needle join.

Anyway, I decided NOT to formulate the cross, just because I want my squares to be more colorful, and less of the neutral borders surrounding the colorful squares.

Twelve done, twelve to go. Each square will have a neutral, log cabin style border added.


These squares are addictive!

The colors are gorgeous and look like great fun to play around with. I can't wait to see how you put the squares together. It's always a delight to see what you are up to.

I think this would be a great way to use up scrap yarn!! I can't wait to see the finished product!

Twelve squares done! Twelve to go.

EARTH, WIND & FIRE…my blanket squares represent soil, sands, sun, rock, lava, water, grasses, leaves, pines, bark, berries, wild flowers…natural, earthly elements.

Beautiful! Reminds me of the collection of tiles in our local clay cafe. Each one is beautiful and together they create this wonderful mosaic.
