The Odd-Ball Sampler Afghan: Sewing it Together

The Finished Odd-Ball Sampler Afghan

This image is a mock-up of how the finished afghan will look.

Step 1: Lay all your squares on the floor in a random order, 6 squares wide and 7 squares high. Keep picking them up and re-arranging them until you are happy with the way they look.

Step 2: Draw a large grid and write down the order in which you want to sew your squares together.

Step 3: Sew your squares together in rows, following your diagram. I prefer to use mattress st, but since many of the squares have a different number of sts you may prefer a different method.

Step 4: Join your rows of squares together using the same technique.

Step 5: Lay the afghan centre out flat and pin the border to it. Attach the border to the centre using a neat st.
