It arrived yesterday afternoon and I've already started making some lovely new squares :-D There's a lot I like about this book-it doesn't have 200 blocks in any way though (I knew this before I bought it as I'd read the reviews), the author gives a square pattern and then shows a picture of the same square in different colour combinations and adds those to the totals so it's a little misleading. There's also a lot of squares that are made with rows of single crochet which I'm not too keen on. Yet in general, so far I like the layout of the books and the way the patterns are presented (it's written with British terms which I'm having to mentally translate as I go because I use American terms)
So here are my first efforts:
These are relatively simple to make but look so pretty. I've made a couple more that I'll photograph tomorrow that are a bit more complex-I think I should really upgrade my crochet level to 'intermediate' now!
I managed to get a couple more shades of green so it's been fun adding those through some of the squares.
I have also made some more of the traditional granny squares-
Total number of squares to make-126 (63/63)
Brown edged granny squares-32 made. 31 to go!
Special Square Motifs-4 made. 59 to go!
Total number of squares made so far-36 (90 to go!)
