Great Granny Squared #3 - Last Blocks Completed

I have finally completed all of my little great granny square blocks.  They where so much fun to make, but it got a lot trickier as I was getting closer to finishing them.  Deciding which fabrics, colour and prints would work well together is not my strong suite, but I think when placing all of the blocks together they really work well.  

It is really hard picking a favourite, I love them all!





I cant wait to see this little quilt stitched together and quilted.  It is going to look so cute!
If you'd like to see all of the blocks I made you can find them here and here.

Guest Host for Anything Goes Mondays - Helen from Till We Quilt Again

Today's guest host for Anything Goes Mondays is the lovely Helen from Till We Quilt Again.  She started quilting 24 years ago and like many of us she fell in love with all things fibre.

Her quilting journey started as a hobby and as time passed she's now a commissioned quilter, making quilts from start to finish. 

This year I was lucky to have Helen test out my Summer Solstice Quilt Pattern featured here today.  You can find a link to the pattern on my patterns page or directly from my Craftsy Store.





You can also follow her on Instagram, Bloglovin, Facebook and Pinterest.

Start linking up now, head on over to her BLOG.

Great Granny Squared #2 - Sorting Scraps

A couple of weeks ago I started up a Great Granny Squared table runner and in the process of digging  through all of my scraps I realized that if I want to be in charge of this project I needed to take charge.  


My scraps was a total mess, scattered between three bins, large, small and odd shapes of fabric.

That was when I decided to start sorting them before I would carry on with my quilt.  I sorted them according to size, larger fold-able pieces, strips, squares and larger pieces.  Now digging through my scraps is much easier.  At least now I have a clear idea of what I have to work with, and this way NOTHING will go to waste.


I bought some small clear plastic containers and labeled them accordingly.


Once I had all of my scraps sorted I stared piecing up a few more blocks.



This is going to be a fun and colourful little quilt!
