The Garden Patch Granny Afghan: I'm Almost Done!

Guess what? After threading my needle thousands of times and after countless hours spent sewing squares together, my Garden Patch Granny Afghan is completely assembled!
You would not believe how excited I was to lay it out on the living room floor and see it all together. I actually had butterflies in my stomach.

I know it has been a long time since I updated you on this project, but really there was not much exciting to say...I was just sewing and sewing square after square together.

But the moment the sewing was done and I was able to stand back and marvel at the sea of grannies covering my floor, made all the hours I spent crouched over with a needle in my hand worth it. I am so happy with how it looks. It is just beautiful and I love it.

I have now removed all the papers and tags that I used to keep track of what went where, and have begun working on the edging. I am keeping the edging quite simple, a necessity I think since the blanket itself is so very busy.

I'm almost done and I am so excited!

  6. How did you sew all of the squares together? I am making a granny square one too.

    1. Hi Samantha,
      I sewed the squares together using the same color yarn as one of the squares. I held the right sides of the squares together and then working from the back, whip stitched through the top loop of the stitches from the last round. I find this method works very well and produces a nice, clean finish on the front. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please ask.
