Crowning Achievement!

Members of the Sunshine International Blankets of Love (SIBOL) group made this beautiful blanket to honor the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

For a Royal Wedding challenge, organizer Sue McGorie (shown) invited members to send small crocheted or knitted afghan squares. As she explains, “The response has been amazing! As you can see, the squares include wedding bells, Westminster Abbey, butterflies, good luck horseshoes, wedding cake, crowns, flags, and more. It's absolutely amazing that this has been achieved through the power of the Internet!”
