This square aghan relies on the contrast between lacyfower motis and solid log-cabin-inspired blocks—the solidlog-cabin strips provide a great deal o weight and warmthagainst the airy lace. A modular construction keeps thingsinteresting as you build block upon block to create astunning, practical aghan.
