Personalized Baby Gifts: Embroidered Baby Gift Ideas from seopages444's blog

In my last article we finished reviewing Blue Ribbon Afghans and did a review of some of the patterns in The Best Of Maggie Weldon's Crochet Afghans. I sincerely hope my reviews have helped you decide if you would like to tackle a pattern that maybe you would ordinarily pass up. In this article we will review several more books. We will begin with:  50 Sensational Crochet Afghans & Throws - The Needlecraft Shop. This book is sooooo worth buying! It has afghans like you have never seen before and will want to try the patterns all at one time! Let's start with:

Joyous Squares on page 8 - This is an intermediate pattern that consists of squares like you have never seen before! The colors in the photo are Fuchsia, Leaf Green, Teal and Lavender. What a color combo, huh? The center of the square is a green X that looks like a chain made into the X. That is rimmed with lavender then fuchsia. Then a square around all that in teal and finally several rounds of green rimmed with fuchsia to tie it all together. Hard to explain this one but take my word for it - its a beauty!

Arbor Rose on page 12 -  A simple and plain off white afghan done in rows of clusters. At each end is a mesh section that has a crocheted trail of stems, leaves and flowers across it all in the same off white. Stunning afghan. This one is rated intermediate also.

Spanish Tiles on page 22 - This afghan is made up of large hexagon and small hexagon motifs and some triangles to bring the rows together. Its another very unusual and pretty afghan. The pattern is done in carrot, medium thyme, gold and burgundy. Beautiful afghan for a sun porch thrown over the back of a wicker chair! This is an intermediate pattern but doesn't appear to be very difficult. This is one I am going to try!

Stained Glass Window Afghan on page 41 - This is by far the most stunning afghan I have ever seen! It is done in blocks of blue, turquoise, light mint, gold, carrot, cornmeal and black. The center cartoon Quilt cover sets online blue graduating to turquoise. Then cornmeal blending into gold blending into carrot. At the four corners is a 3 leaflet of turquoise and blue. Its then bordered with several rows of black, then a row of carrot then a row of black. Over the center circle of colors is a web of black that gives it that definite stained glass look. Only rated intermediate! I really want to try this one! I have seen one done and its exquisite!

Grandma and Grandbabies on page 49 - This afghan is rated easy and easy it is! I have made this one. Its really a huge granny square done in dark pink for 3 rows, then fern green for 3 rows, then off white for 2 rows, then gold for 4 rows, then pink for 3 rows, then fern green for several rows and so on. When you are finished with the big granny square you make the grandbabies - small squares in different patterns that you whipstitch to each end of the granny. Then go around the whole thing with several rows of each color. Works up pretty quick. A great teen blanket!
