Crochet Afghan Block / Crochet Motif #81

Hi There,
I am still on my journey of creating 1000 squares, but in the middle of this road, I still want all squares to be useful and at the end joined into blankets. Lately, I decided to try to create bigger squares, so the entire blanket would contain about 25 of them. I already plan to join smaller granny squares into a 100 different squares blanket, and with this square, I start another project – a throw blanket made of 25 different squares. Maybe there will be more of them, like 36. We will see. You can find all squares for this project by following 25 squares blanket tag.
As for now, I like this square. I think a blanket made of multiple copies of this square will look great.
