Working on Iris and Lillies on the Wednesday Before Easter
Normally, I edge the individual squares ( which I did in purple first) and tie them together and join in one long row, working across and then up and down. But, these squares needed a little more help with getting to the same size so (enter the mellow yellow) they're not all edge with the same number of rows, or even the same stitches; and I wanted a bit more width then the 4 squares across would give. This seems to accomplish both of those goals, AND it's a bit less on your lap to work with therefore making it a bit more portable. Currently the mellow yellow joining and edging of the block of 4 squares is muting the bright yellow a smedge which is helping to blend...I think the more mellow yellow in the variegated squares.
I'll be looking through my stash once this is all 1 piece to see about an appropriate purple to edge the whole thing with.
This is another of the ghans assembled from donated squares through Bridge and Beyond which will be donated to Homeless Families Foundation.
I hope this Wednesday finds you happily busy. Those who are traveling for the up coming holiday, please be safe and enjoy your time with loved ones.
