Make it Monday ~ Stained Glass Granny Complete ~ 4/27/15

 
 
 
Last week, this was the progress I had made on my Stained Glass Granny.

 
 First, I finished all 35 granny squares.
 
 
Next, I crocheted all the squares together.  This took me a while.  It is a tedious process that I don't really mind, but I was still sore from surgery so I had to take a couple breaks after wrestling with the strips of squares.
 
 
After I got them all crocheted together, I added border rows, alternating between color and black.  I finished it off with a black scalloped edging. 
 
 
And...Stained Glass Granny is COMPLETE!!!
 
 
 
 
 
So, what do you think of my Stained Glass Granny?  Have you made one similar?
 
Now, on to my next project.  I think I'll call it "Sunny Blue Hawaii".  More on that later...
 
Please leave me a comment with a link so I can return the visit!!

  2. The colors and patterns are gorgeous. I always wanted to learn to do this. I tried when I was little but had no patience. This is beautiful and you did such nice work.

  5. I love that stained-glass look. My aunt makes beautiful stained-glass quilts out of denim from blue jeans, and the effect really is striking. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Awesome! I love the diamond shape of the little holes, where the light, or background comes through. It adds to the whole afghan. :-D
