Sampler Afghan Square #7

It's time for the next block!  Square #7 is our solid block for April.  This one is easy peasy, I promise!  It only uses chain, single crochet, and treble crochet stitches.  This stitch makes a solid fabric with nice bumpy texture to add some interest to your project. 

For first timers - you can find the introduction to the project here.  And following are links to squares #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, and #6.  You can also find all the square patterns on this pinterest board'
