Perky Pillowghan Square

Image of Picture of the Perky Pillowghan Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

Sorry, I could not think of a better name. This pillowghan square can be easily altered to make a small 6" x 6" square or continued on for an afghan. It is very versitle. This square does tend to be wavy. This is a great pattern to use up scraps you may have.
