I love patchwork afghans. I actually would like to make them for my own use or for a gift but the problem is I lose my enthusiasm when it's time to connect the pieces together. In fact, I have here pieces of granny squares in different colors that have not been sewn together to make that beautiful afghan because I lost energy in the middle of the project. Anyway. This Setting Sun Patchwork Afghan is very beautiful, the colors are cool and vibrant. They represent the colors that you see and get to enjoy when the sun is setting in the western sky. Thanks for this free pattern.
