This picture is not great but it gives you sense of how it will all go together. (It is pouring down rain here today so the lighting is poor, adding to the challenge of getting something this big into a single frame.) I’ll start the sewing tomorrow—for now I’m off to make a diagram of the layout and put all the squares away before the cat decides it looks like a comfy place to take a nap...or worse.

The Beginning of the End
After several hours of arranging and rearranging I have come up with the final layout of the afghan blocks. I knew that this process would involve some playing around until I got it right but it took a lot longer than I expected. It was a real challenge to arrange the blocks so that there was an even distribution of colours, shades, and textures.
