Granny Squares

Three things to be happy about:
(1) Turning the calendar
(2) a little more patience
(3) naming the constellations

Working on the granny square blocks...

I think the most boring part is prepping and cutting the fabric, even with the Accuquilt die!

I spent a lot of time on my feet yesterday but I was on a roll and didn't want to stop.

I'm trying to lay out the colors so they're pretty much balanced, at the same time I don't want to spend all day moving them around.

Sewing rows together ... getting there!

Five done so far, just need to trim the last four!

I'm following this tutorial by Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches.

Perhaps I'll set the blocks 7 x 8, plus borders...

Sew forth and sew on


  1. There you go again, being all inspiring! Your quilt is going to be so bright and happy. And now I have a strong urge to start gathering squares...

  2. Just be glad you have the space to lay them all out. I think they are looking great.
