Monthly Afghan Ideas

Since I started the Sweetheart ripple I thought about doing an afghan for every month (may take longer, but one for each month). My coworker had a cross stitch leaflet with a cross stitch pattern for each month and each month has a quilt on it. She's done several over the years. So I have some ideas.

January - Snowflake Afghan
February - Sweetheart Ripple


March - Shamrock square (I have a pattern I wrote up last year and it turned out cute)

April - Butterflies
May - Tulips (not sure yet, there is some quilt pattern somewhere I could proabably use)
June - Double Wedding Ring (started this a loooong time ago, so it's somewhat done)
July - Red, White and Blue (I recently found a RWB leaflet at a second hand store, so maybe one of these or a flag afghan) Or there's this one 
Which I started here:

I did this one for a friend, used 2 strands of yarn, no pattern, so it's an idea for anyone else:

Aug - Flowers
Sept - Back to School or Home or maybe even School bus
Oct - Harvest of Friends
Nov - Fall Leaves
Dec - Christmas

So those are some ideas. If you have a favorite, please put it in the comments section. I would love to hear it. I have my heart set on some (Jan, Feb [since I'm almost done], Mar, June [since that's half done and a favorite quilt pattern of mine], April [maybe, I want a butterfly one though]).

I changed Aprils because I tried the butterfly square and could not get it... thought I'd try it for my sampler square afghan.
