The Prince Protea square is another amazing mandala-inspired project. It’s a little staburst of colr on an ornate, multi-layered background. While you can make these squares subdued, the vibrant color contrasts in the photos below are really the forte of this pattern. Prince Potea squares are a great addition to your square quiver and can be used for blankets, afghans, throws and other wide, flat surfaces. Additionally, they can certainly be added as a decorative motif to something like a tote bag. Enjoy! A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
