There has been quite a buzz in blogland over granny squares. I couldn't help but check it out. Krista at My Bugs & Dana from Old Red Barn Company have teamed up with Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches and are hosting the highly anticipated Granny Squares QAL.
I have to admit that I was a little turned off by the amount of 2.5" squares that are involved. I decided to just make 1 block before I commited myself to the QAL. Well, after 1 I was hooked. I just adore the Granny Sqare blocks and can't wait to get more finished. Of course, it always helps when you are cutting into a fabric you love ;)
|You see how the middle square is smaller? Yeah, that's a cutting oops. I figure I can just turn it into a mugrug ;)|
I am using a Flora jelly roll along with a few prints in my stash and Kona Cotton in White. I just love the colors, especially the orange!
Have you joined in on all of the Granny square fun? If not, you should check out the flickr group where there is a ton of inspiration. It may just convince you to make some yourself ;)
Hope everyone has a lovely day!
