Granny Square Sampler Completed

After all those weeks of crocheting all different kinds of granny squares, in all different colors, my own granny square sampler is finally done. I finished it over a week ago, but spent a few evenings weaving in tails.
There were a lot of tails-

I’m so happy I kept with this project! I hope those of you that did it with me are too! I plan to take a full picture in better light to put on the project page and the ravelry page, etc.
One last question- did anyone add an interesting border around their afghan they could link to? I’m undecided about adding another round to mine, but thought seeing others might help me decide.
Added 10/29/12- The finished dimensions of this afghan (without any additional borders I may add) is 36″ x 46″. There were about 7 various granny squares that I did not use in the finished piece. I certainly could have used these, and made the afghan bigger, but the end use I had in mind for this one was as a lap blanket.

    Mine is sitting in a bag waiting to be joined & I’m afraid I need more squares. I think it might turn into an after Christmas, stuck in the January blahs project.

    congrats on finishing your afghan 🙂
    I have started on a striped crochet afghan, my third blanket. But I have only done 1/4 of it so far. It takes quite a while to do such bigger projects. But its pretty nice to have a homemade afghan 🙂

    Thank you so much for all the hard
    work that must have gone into putting
    this project together. I have now
    finally learnt to crochet, with all
    the videos, instructions and tips
    in the comments.
    So thank you to everyone!
    I’ve not finished quite yet, but
    well on the way, and looking good.
    Its been great fun – thanks!

    It will be a perfect remedy for post-holidays. Start joining before you make more squares, adding the borders you will need to even out the squares really makes this project grow.

    Thanks Linda! I was thinking a picot edge might be nice, still on the fence.

    It’s a fantastic construction and it needs no special border : the “inside” is so present that nothing had to come and disturb the eyes ….

    Blair, this is absolutely stunning.
    I am incredibly impressed with this quilt, stuff like this – REAL craft – is quickly dying out in favour of tacky craft projects.
    I would do anything for a handmade quilt like this on the end of my bed!
