I took a break from the botanical granny squares to make this mandala in memory of Marinke Slump. I found out about her tragic suicide while searching the internet for a Black-eyed Susan granny square pattern. There is a project to raise awareness of depression that will feature the colorful mandalas that she was known for. More information can be found here.

Flowery Granny Squares

I first saw these botanical granny squares on a jigsaw puzzle that I got at Piece Time Puzzles in New Hampshire last week on vacation. I found the book on the internet and ordered it right away. These are the first four squares. More to come. They are: Strawberries, Queen Anne's lace, some kind of dahlia, and a red day lily. It will be an afghan for my mom.
