    Here's a picture of my new project - just started. It will be a twin size when finished. I will also have another one to do only it will be green where this one is pink. They are for my twin granddaughters for graduation in May. I hope I get them finished in time. Their Mother told me their favorite colors are the bright pink and green. The colors are actually brighter that in the picture. Thanks for looking.

    Pretty colors! My grandma knitted, and her afgans are among my most precious treasures (most of which came from her). What a superb gift.

    Cathie - These are Great!! I love your choice of fabrics. That dot fabric is awesome. The girls are sure to love them. Can you share where you got the pattern? I like how big the blocks are.

    The pattern is an old traditional pattern but I think you can Google it and find it. It's called Snail's Trail. The block finishes at 12 inches after squaring and when they are sewn together they will finish at 11 1/2. Fabric came from Wal Mart. I'm lucky to have a local WalMart that still has a fabric department.
