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. :)

    1. This is just my version of the free corner to corner afghan pattern from red heart. The stars are from a pattern I found on pinterest.

    2. How did you do the stars? Did you make them & sew them on?

  3. Beautiful! Are the stars sew on afterward? They almost look like they are prt of the blue... Did you use a special technique for sewing them on so well?
