This granny decided that 4 granny square blocks were enough. I’ve got so many projects going and all I really wanted was to just make a couple blocks because they are so darn cute.
The blocks I showed on Monday. You can find the tutorial for the block at Blue Elephant Stitches.
I just added a 1.5 inch strip between the blocks with another 1.5 inch square in the middle.
Edit: I used 1 1/2inch squares for my granny blocks. The fabric line was either Forever Spring or Garden Song both by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex. added October 12, 2013.
Did a little stipple quilting in the background and the middle blocks and added a binding for a little wall hanging or I could sit a little basket on it.
This one is now added to my wall so I can enjoy it.
See the little corner of a wall hanging in the top right-hand corner….I’ll have a tutorial on that for you tomorrow.
Yesterday our weather got up to 71 degrees! It was windy but I couldn’t resist spending time outside enjoying the sunlight and warmth.
I also received a couple packages in the mail….it was just like Christmas!
I received this neat book called Back to Charm School by Country Threads from Karen at Selvage Blog. The book is even signed by the authors! You should see the projects Karen makes with selvage! She also has a new pattern out called Cane Weave that looks neat!
What is so neat for me about the book I won is that about 2 years ago my husband and I went to Northern Iowa for his mom’s 90th birthday and I had a whole list of quilt shops to stop at. I remember when we were trying to find Country Threads and missed it the first time…..it is out in the country. What a neat shop!
I also received these cute pot holders, charm pack and a dresden template from Richard and Tanya! Richard has a great blog called Richard Quilts and I was one of his Leap Day winners.
See this cute label on the pot holder? I asked Richard how he made it and he said he went to Spoonflower.com and designed a fat quarter of fabric of his label. What a neat idea! Thanks so much Richard and Tanya!
