Meet Maude (and Harold) - the fifth installment to the Lovestruck collection, a series of twelve star-crossed afghan blocks sure to melt your heart.

Each block in the Lovestruck collection comes with the pattern for a 9 inch afghan block and the pattern for a complimentary border that will bring the square to 12 inches. Better yet, all of the borders are interchangeable among the other blocks in the collection so you can mix things up and play matchmaker! Instructions are also included for the borders to be used on other square or rectangle projects.

Designer’s note: Maude is a surprisingly easy and quick square to make with lots of depth. The longer stitches can be a bit tricky to make neatly, but the good news is that the way the square is constructed covers up the tops of these stitches that can get a bit loose. The woven corners are most definitely advanced but they are completely optional. The pattern includes detailed instructions on how to make them, but also looks great without them.

Two versions of the pattern are included for download - a photo-rich version and a no-frills, printer-friendly, text-mostly version that includes a single small photo.
