Loggy Squares Afghan

I just finished my Loggy Squares Afghan last week to give to a friend of mine home from college in Chicago for the summer. She loves pink, so this afghan will be great for wrapping up while studying on those cold Chicago nights.
I wrote up the pattern and it's now for sale for only $5 in my etsy shop.

I came up with the idea for this log cabin because I wanted to make log cabin squares but use a different technique besides the traditional "in-the-round" method. My squares are worked on opposing sides to add length, then sewn together so that no two colors touch on all four sides. I really loved the way it turned out, and I'm really happy that I can share my design with others!

It looks great. I love it! I'm not usually much on pink, but I really like the color combo.

Really nice! The black framing sure sets it off. You've inspired me. Got to get back to my log cabin.

I have never done a log cabin ghan but do have a pattern book to do one. Maybe that will be a goal for next year. Yours is very inspiring. Thanks for your comments on my recent entry at Ripple along. Nice to meet you.
