So here are the blocks for this week from the "200 crochet blocks" book by Jan Eaton:
GS #86-Diamond in a Square (#83 in the book)
I have done a diamond pattern before, but this one is a little different.
GS # 87-Lemon Stripe (#85 in the book)
This square reminds me of lemons and limes, which makes me long for summer. This pattern also had a few popcorn stitches, which are hard to see in the picture.
GS #88-Sunray (#86 in the book)
This pattern was easy to do, the only adjustments I made was sc in round 7 instead of dc
GS #89- Peony (#87 in the book)
For this block I had to omit rounds 9 & 10, since that would have made the flower to big and the finished block too large
GS #90-Edwardian Fancy- (#88 in the book)
I had to omit round 11 on this block to make it the right size. This is a fancy block that would make a nice table runner or great coasters.
GS # 91-Spinner (#89 in the book)
This block was fun to make and would look good in many different color combinations.
GS # 92-Victorian Lace (#92 in the book)
This is a pretty square that would look good in different colors. I would only use one color for this square, since using more that one would take away from the lacy look.
I hope you enjoy this weeks squares!
