White Crochet Afghan--Old Photo

Found this picture.  Not the best picture, took with a 35mm film camera and I couldn't see the results right away--why I love digital.

I remember making it for a wedding gift.  The mom told me her daughter would save it for a baby. I think because it wasn't very big and white.  It was just s throw.

Speed Race Strip Quilt

I decided to try this out on my day off.  I did not win.  ;) . Took me 35 minutes to sew the first strips together. Ok. I had more strips,  48. But it took alonger then I'd hoped. Love the finished result though. Batik print. 2 rolls. 2.5 x 42 inches each strip.

Patten is probably a variation of a SC Cresent shawl I saw on ralvery, without the point. The pattern wasn't finished, but there was a rough draft. Desperately Seeking SC Cresent Shawl.

I Started with 1 sc, then 3 sc in that. I did 3 sc on each end, 3 sc at the point.
Reverse single crochet on edging.
