It's done!!!  I just finished!  I first crocheted around them to get them all pretty much the same size.  I then joined them by single crochet.  And then did a few rounds of double crochet for the borders.  Voila!



I love it!  It's the perfect size for a lap afghan.  I'm sitting under it as I type.  ;)  Now to finish the 49 block CAL one.  Wish me luck.

Beautiful work. Do you plan on doing others based on this one of the other house teams?

Thank you!

Uhm, probably not. Each block took me all month to make so I don't think so. I did each house in the crochet blocks that I'm gonna put together in one afghan. If I did another knitted afghan, I'd probably do Slytherin colors cause I love green & I'd probably use different block patterns. But that would most likely be ten years or so done the road when the memory of making this one had faded ;)
