And then there were ten

At the outset of beginning my 2012 North Carolina State Fair project, I knew that the element I have come to call the “multi-color motif” was going to be the most time intensive part of the afghan.

Each square is composed of 9 pieces made from 13 colors. Because of this there is a lot of joining, a lot of weaving in of ends, and a certain level of attention is required for each piece.

So today instead of working in tandem on this project and the felted fat bag, I fixed all of my attentions on the multi-color motifs, first finishing these six:

Six multicolor crochet motifs

and then beginning work on the 40 textured rectangles and 40 textured small squares that I will need to complete the last ten motifs, the center squares for which can be seen here:

crochetbug, textured crochet squares, textured crochet rectangles, textured crochet blanket, textured crochet afghan textured crochet quilt, multicolor crochet
A pyramid of center crochet squares for the last 10 multi-color motifs

Part of the urgency of getting these motifs done has to do with my non-crochet life.

I am usually able to schedule things for “after the state fair,” but this year, I have had a few things come up that will not wait and which also must be done between now and October 8, so I am hoping to get these last 10 motifs done this week so that I have the time I need to assemble all of the pieces.
