Our local county fair was later this year than normal, and the entries were only about 1/3 of what they normally are. This makes me sad because I so enjoy seeing what everyone makes each year in all the different divisions. It was also a little disappointing, especially since my afghan was the only one entered in my division. In the rules, if there is only one entry, it automatically takes 2nd place. So, not only was I surprised to see mine as the only entry, but I was also surprised to see a blue ribbon! No matter. I absolutely love my afghan and am looking forward to curling up with it during the cold winter days with a good book or my next crochet project & a nice cup of hot tea or hot cocoa.
I patterned after the log cabin quilt pattern: sunshine & shade. I love how the colors came together. The border is my own little added touch. No pattern for it – just the one that came together out of my head!
