After a month of working on the floral bouquet afghan it is finished. I was rather surprised at how fast it went together. I did up enough squares at a time to make a row. There are 8 rows of 6 squares. I sewed up each row and started attaching the rows as I went. This kept me from having a bag with a bunch of squares in it. I only had 6 squares made up at one time. I love the border on it. I am still unsure if I will give this as a gift or keep it for myself. I will enter it in our county fair this fall.
I just love how the squares form a circle with a diamond inside. It really turned out pretty. I was getting bored towards the last few squares, but I pushed myself to keep going. Once I started the border my interest was renewed. I am proud of myself that I stuck it through and got another afghan finished. And I did not start another project in the middle of it!!! Now all I have to do is finish all the other projects I have started in the last 5 years!!
