Daisy Square

I saw a post on Red Heart's Face Book page about a really cool pattern for a daisy square motif. I like working with motifs simply because they work up quickly and are way more portable than a entire afghan. So I followed the link and found Krochet Krystal's blog.
The cool thing about this pattern is that once you join her Yahoo group (linked on her blog) the owner will email you a pdf file with the pattern for free she only requests that you make at least one square with either white or black back ground and mail it to her. She takes the squares that have been sent to her from all over the world and makes beautiful blankets, then donates them to different charities.
I LOVE this and wanted to get involved right away. Each square is labeled with a city, state and/or country that it came from. I can only imagine the joy this might bring to someone. I know I would love to look at each square, read each label and think about the person who made it.
This is a great way to use up scraps. Here's my first 2 contributions.
The pattern challenged me a little bit at first but she has lots of resources for help.
