Can you believe it’s time for block 20!!! It’s also kind of sad now we are almost coming to the end of the CAL but also exciting as we are not far from our complete blanket. Now whether you are an Afghan square enthusiast or not you’ve got to love the designs of Julie Yeager. Her Afghan squares in particular are always stunning and the ones I love the most are those that resemble a stained glass window. As a big fan of hers I knew I wanted to add one of her designs in the CAL.
This square will be available as a free Ravelry download throughout the end of the year 2015 (December 31, 2015).

Ta dah!! This is my version of this square using my colour palette (I blogged about this here). I love how it turned out! I love, love, love the stained glass window effect and how it highlights the pinks and purples in the centre!
