KCACO-UK CAL 2015 – Block 8


As you hopefully know to make this CAL a bit different from others every block, that is a multiple of 4 (e.g. 4,8,12,16,20), will be selected by YOU in a public vote. I can now reveal that the square that received the majority vote was ‘D’ which IS…. the ‘Tiptoe Through the Tulips’ Square!

Designed by another fabulous designer friend, Samantha from Silverdragon Crafts & CrittersSamantha has kindly designed this super pretty block especially for this CAL. One of the great things about it, other than how lovely it is, is that it really doesn’t need blocking when you are done!

This square is currently free on Ravelry and will be forever (yay!).

Although we are on block 8 there is still plenty of time to catch up – the full schedule and details about the CAL can be found here.

My Version:

Ta dah!! This is my version of this square using my colour palette (I blogged about this here). I really love the 3-D’ness of this square and how the centre flower could also be used as a separate motif or as part of the square. 08+Logo 09+Logo

  1. Reblogged this on Clovers 4 Ewe and commented:
    Trying to keep up as far as sharing goes, even though I’m behind on this project myself. I’d started this project for my son but his impatience led me to work up a corner to corner afghan for him. This project for me is on hold, due to orders, but here it is for you if you’re brave enough and not ADD enough to keep up. lol

    Feel free to leave a comment and link to what you’re making with these. 🙂 I’d love to see what colors you chose and your thoughts on this CAL.

    Happy Hooking!
