Great Granny Squared #1


I recently purchased both 'Great Granny Squared' and 'Quilty Fun' by Lori Holt from Bee In My Bonnit.  I was completely drawn to the fun, bright and cute designs I've seen on Instagram.  It was hard to decide which pattern from both books I wanted to start with, but chose to start with one of her Great Granny Squared table runners.


So, after cutting all of the background fabric pieces I was ready to start.  I am not working with a direct plan for each block, I just grab some pieces of fabric that I think will go together, cut what I need and start piecing them together.  

For some time I had no idea what I was going to do with all of my fabric scraps that I've accumulated over the past few years, so at least now I will be able to make good use of them.  For the time being I have finished 5, 6½ blocks.




...I will share more blocks as I've finished them.

These are so bright, cheerful and pretty! : )

I made a great granny table runner last year and want to do something larger one day. Have fun, they are fun, aren't they? :)

I love the turquoise setting. I made mine with navy blue and enjoyed the whole process.

love all the colors - I finished a queen size granny top back in about March or April I think it was, I will hand quilt it (I think) as soon as the current quilt comes off the frame. Something about that pattern just said I had to make it.

I love how bright and fun the teal background makes these blocks! I keep looking at the Great Granny Squared book too. You may just make me give in and spend the $.

I made a Great Granny quilt, and I love it. Yours is going to be beautiful with that blue background. It's great because it's different. Have fun!
