Lauren Rose Afghan Square

Once the decision was made to jump into the world of design, I knew immediately that I wanted to leave each of my grandchildren a remembrance of my love. My intention is to design a square that demonstrates their personalities.

This square is the first in the series and named after my youngest granddaughter Lauren Rose. She is active, inquisitive, and so darn smart. I decided to make her an heirloom blanket out of the squares.   I used nine squares for a small blanket, joining and adding a border design that came straight from my heart.  It is finished, pinned, blocked and ready for delivery.

All of these squares are designed to be used as blanket squares, a center piece for a blanket, a pillow or tote.  This is an advanced beginner to intermediate pattern.

Lauren Rose is one of three designs featured in The Ultimate Granny Squares Sourcebook: 100 Contemporary Motifs to Mix and Match.

This intermediate pattern can be found here. You can also find Macey Ann, Marley Mae, Kinnedy Nichelle and Madux James in my other posts. 🙂



Lauren Rose Afghan Square

The Lauren Rose square was designed in honor of my granddaughter and will be given to her as an heirloom. 💕 It is in the testing phase and will be released soon.

I wanted to make her a small blanket, so I used nine of the squares and joined them using a flat braid join. The design for the border came from my heart. 💕 Today I sewed in the ends, pinned and blocked it. Almost done! 😊
