What are you most proud of? I'm proud of completing the class, and I'm also proud that when my squares were too off square for me to feel good about using them in an afgan (even after blocking which did help), I was able to figure out how to use them in a functional and pretty way.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When you get to log 3, use needles a size or two larger than what you have been using. This is the log that really seemed to throw off the square.

I decided to use the squares to make pillows instead of an afgan as they were pretty misshappen. Our couch uses big pillows for back comfort and these 18 inch pillows are perfect size. Joined fronts to backs with a crocheted slip stitch. In the pictures one picture shows the "fronts" and the other picture is the "backs".
