I don’t spend a lot of time surfing the internet, but the few times I have as of late, I’ve been seeing lots of “Granny Square” projects. I really tempted to make a few blocks…just to give them a try. Then I thought, “NO, don’t start yet another project.” Then I justified the whole temptation and jumped right in when I remembered that I would be needing a baby girl quilt soon.
The original pattern for the blocks can be found here at Blue Elephant Stitches. That original block pattern uses 2 1/2″ squares but I used 2″ squares. I just like things smaller. Here are a couple more blocks. I have been using the bright scraps of fabric blog readers have been gifting me…THANKS everyone!!
I have four trimmed and ready for a quilt. I have a stack of seven more here that need to be trimmed.
I’ve been just doing one or two blocks a night until last night. I got to thinking that baby is due pretty soon so I better get working on the quilt. Then just as I was going to bed, I noticed a Facebook post that said the baby had just arrived.
Well now I know what project is going to be on my front burner…Jacey’s baby quilt! Congrats to my nephew and his wife, Johnse and Lauren.
