The colors of Fall

Out of all of the seasons I think Fall would have to be my favorite.  There is just something about the way the air smells and the magnificent colors.  It's always fun to try and capture the colors in crochet.  I finished this one a few days ago and it is already in it's forever home.  I have to say I really really loved the way this afghan turned out.  I plan to make another one in similar colors to keep for myself so I can be surrounded by fall all year long.

Stars and Stripes Corner to Corner afghan

I recently finished a huge corner to corner afghan using the free pattern from RedHeart which can be found here:   http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/crochet-corner-corner-throw

The stars pattern was a pinterest find and if anyone needs it I'll be happy to hunt it down for you or you can go to my pinterest boards which can be found here:  http://www.pinterest.com/swilson05193/boards/

I call this my stars and stripes corner to corner.  It is big enough to fit a queen size bed.
For the border I did one round of granny and then a scallop round after that.  I wanted to keep it simple as not to take away from the afghan.

My inspiration for this afghan came from a quilt that I found online.  I don't quilt so I did the next best thing and crocheted it :)
Inspiration comes from many places, whether it be nature, or other things in our surroundings.  Do what inspires you make it yours and share so you can inspire others. :)
