Inspired by the colours of Thanksgiving and Christmas both, this block is called Dilly Dahlia and represents the flower of the same name. A series of fptrc gives the illusion of depth and quality to the work.

Beautiful!  Love the combination of round and square - lots of interest, but not too hole-y.

Thanks, Jill!! I've made several this week and every time, the new colour combinations thrill me! They are perfect for afghan exchanges where people don't want holey things!   I'm so very excited to be selected as part of the finalist group!!!!!

I can imagine this as a big afghan throw.  Very pretty with warm and inviting colours. Looks like it would be a warm afghan, too!

Yes, that is true! Thank you so much.  I was actually considering doing a full afghan, but alternating each coloured block with a solid colour block. Maybe next year!!

Those colors are great for this pattern. The "Dilly Dahlia" name fits perfectly - it's joyously regal.  I want to make this one!

This is quite possibly the greatest sample of crochet I have seen in my decades-long experience as a competitive speed-crocheter and prestigious crochet critic. Thank you so much for the opportunity to view this masterpiece. I hope to see more.

My favorite square by far!  I even love the way you photographed it!  :-)  Your craftsmanship is superb.  I'm going to attempt making this without a pattern.  We'll see how it goes.  :-)  -Alison in TX

I love the way this looks vintage. Exactly what I want to cozy up in on the couch, with a nice view of the snow , a roaring fire, and good book. What yarn was used here? It does look like there is some depth. I had to look closer. Tracy
