Spiral Counterpane Update

About 30 minutes ago, I stitched together the last of the spirals. Now I'll weave in the loose ends and begin knitting and blocking the small triangles to fill in the gaps around the edge.

Another terrific book in anyone's library. You can get it cheap and it is still full of ideas and creative spirit for you to squeeze it out. lol!

Here it is in all it's blocked out glory. It took less than 8 balls of yarn to complete (what to do with the leftovers *grins*).
