Springtime Crochet-a-Long "Lite" | Joining Motifs

The project I picked for the
Springtime Crochet-a-Long "Lite" 
is coming along. 

All the Blossom Squares, Granny Squares, and Granny Triangles are finished
and ready to be joined
These have all been laid out and joined with a sc.
I crocheted these together in one diagonal direction first and the other direction second.

and now it looks like this:

The next step is the border.

The pattern I am using is the Blush Blossom Pom-Pom Pillow

I am going to make a Bed Runner.
(Perhaps with pom poms.)

Come play along!

I am also writing the pattern due to the modifications to the
original pattern.

  1. I love the freshness that the plain white square (with a small central 'dot' of colour) bring to the other flowery squares. It gives them breathing space!

    1. What a lovely way to describe the square Sandra. Thank you, you always have a way with words.

  2. So pretty. Those little dots of color in the simple grannies make for a really nice design.

    1. Thank you Tammy! It's nice to hear from you. I hope you are well!
