What materials did you use? I used a mixture of Red Heart yarn and I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby in 18 different colors

What are you most proud of? I completed this afghan in a little under 2 weeks. I thought it would be hard to sew together but it fit perfectly together like a puzzle. I will be making more of these! You can find the pattern here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/realta-afghan

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern says to use an I hook. I used an H hook and the center pieces seem to not lie as flat as they should. Next time I will use the I hook. Also, lay your sections out on a spare bed as you finish them. This was you can see if you are repeating a color or color combo too often

Finished in two weeks?! Incredible! You must be a super-speedy crocheter, Lynn. I love your color combos. My daughter would also love this pattern, so I am going to check out the pattern right away. Beautiful piece!

This is really awesome. I just wish I had the patience. Granddaughter would really love it, she is 7 years old. Keep up the great work.
