Make It Monday ~ "Flame Square" and "Festive Julie Ann" ~ 1/28/19

BAWCAL 2019 #2

The second Block-a-Week 2019 hosted by Julie Yeager is a pattern by Jessie at Home called Flame Square.

The original pattern used flame colors of red, orange and yellow.  There were lots of back post stitches in this pattern.  I don't mind back post stitches but they do slow me down a bit even though the effect is lovely.

Moogly Block #2

The Moogly CAL second block is called "Festive Julie Ann" by Linda Dean at

I really love the texture and "scalloped" look to this block.  The effect was made by using the Long Loop Front Post Double Crochet a row below the round.  I'll admit that I had to start this one twice as I wasn't placing the LLFDC in the right spot to get the off-set color placement.  This block came out to about 10" so I added a few rounds to get it up to the 12" needed.

I now have seven 12"+ squares ready for Laken's Ombre Afghan.  Only 18 more to go!!



  1. Very pretty! I also like the scalloped edge and that color pallet is beautiful! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday!

  2. Okay! Now this is something I love to do and these are definitely not like any squares I've made before. Thank you for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend? I am excited to find something new to do. Hope you come back with more.
