2 1/2" squares For A ghan for my mom

Not sure how this works... or if this is in the rite spot.. but,

 

 

EDIT: im changing it to 2 1/2" squares.. I figued out that for what i want to do a 6" will not work.

 

I'd like to make a afghan for my mom... To show her how much she means tome.. and how much i apreciate everything she has done for me the past 3 yrs since we moved to ga. without getting into it.. My family has been thru a very rough road ever since we moved to ga.. it's been one thing after another. one Major family event after another.. and just when the dH n i finaly think we have overcome it.. something else happens. and thru all this my mom has been there for us... Watching kids, advocating for us, lending me money when i needed it that day, She is no spring chicken, she has a hard time keeping up with the kids but she stuck it out and watched them for me while i worked and hubby was away trying to sort out his prolbem with his ex wife. even thou she phyiscaly could not watch them. she did it with no complaint.

 

So i'd like to put a Comfortghan together for her...

I"d have a idea in my head.. she loves elvis.. so i'm thinking of making a full size bed Quiltstyle afghan. that spells out elvis. THe word ELvise in black. with tan or goldish /white/grey background.

If anyone is wiling to help I'd apreciate it. her birthday is in JAn so i figured I'd make it a bday gift. christmas seems to soon for this.

 

I'm going to get my graph pper out and figure how many of each id need. Unless someone else is good at that.. 2 1/2" squares. In the colors black/white/grey/tan or goldish

 

I was thinking it lengthwise... Spelling out Elvis then the background could be mxture of the other colors and i'd put a solid black or white boarder on it.. and I'd be sure to let her know who all contributed to it..

She'd love it so much. and if you wanted to put a small note of happy birthday in it for her..

 

This would mean alot to me and her if you'r willing to do it. I thank you all in advance. and if anyone wants to help with putting the design togher i have in my head I'd love that as well.

I would like to help, too. I have plenty of black and tan yarn. What would be a good hook size for this? I may try a few using G, H and I to see how close I can get to 2.5 inches. Please PM your address and I will make up a batch.

 

Just a suggestion, you may want to change the title of your post to indicate saltines or 2.5 inch squares.

thank u I'll pm the addy to u 2.. how do i change the title?

 

I am making this massive afghan rite now the one in my siggy and im using a size G.

 

They are 2 1/2 inch Squares... and they come out pretty good....

 

Im thinking Elvis is going to B spelled out in all black... Then I'll work out the background in the other colors..... I have some squares together for the ATW afghan im working on. Im going to spead them out over my DD's bed she has the same size bed as grammy.. this will hopefuly give me a rough idea of how many squares will do fora full...

 

1073 is what the ATW afghan calls for and that is Queen size.. so who knows how many for a regular bed
