Chain Reaction Block: "Autumn Interwoven"
This beautiful 12"x12" block is my entry into the Chain Reaction Project that is being put on by Interweave Crochet. They are having 10 designers design blocks that will be featured 5 at a time in the next 2 issues of the magazine. In the following 2 issues they will feature 10 block designs that are the winners of a contest. This is how it works. Crocheters like me, or you, design blocks, submit a picture and description to the gallery on Crochetme.com. The editors choose their 20 to 30 favorites. Crochetme.com members vote on their favorites of those finalists. The 10 with the most votes win a contract, $100, and their block design will be in the magazine. So, I was not asked to be one of the lucky 10 designers who get to be in the next 2 issues. This is my entry into the contest. It is called "Autumn Interwoven". I especially like the Interwoven part since this is for Interweave Crochet. I really like the pop that the blue gives to the color palette. I really enjoyed making this block. It reminded me of making placemats with woven construction paper strips when I was a kid. Am I the only one who did that? Anway, click here to see my block in the gallery over at Crochetme.com. If you are not a member there, I suggest you check it out. The deadline for entries is not until August, so it will be awhile before I hear anything more about it, but that's pretty typical when dealing with magazines anyway. They plan to put all of the blocks together into an afghan that will be auctioned for charity. They are also encouraging readers to make an afghan including each of the blocks and donate them to charity. Cool project, huh?! Well, I will have more to show you soon, but it is late, so this is it for tonight.
