If you are just coming across our CAL, you can find our Facebook Group Patchwork Mystery CAL here!
Joining my Afghan Squares was a challenge, with SO many different techniques out there it was hard to choose from, but I find one perfect for mine! I used a DC techniques to Join my afghan squares. Below is a picture on my Join and a Video Tutorial to show you exactly what I did.
Once I joined all of my Afghan Squares, I added a DC Border around the whole Afghan. After I did this I searched and searched Pinterest until I found the perfect decorative border I was looking for. I call it the “Lollipop” technique. lol The actual pattern came from My Crafts which can be found here.
I also made a Video Tutorial of my “Lollipop” Border and you can find it below which is from my YouTube Channel.
And here is my finished Patchwork Mystery CAL Afghan! I hope you like it and are able to find the perfect Join and Border for your Patchwork Mystery CAL Afghan!
