Still working on my Positively Perfect Quilt, I actually finished the backer tonight but couldn’t jump into quilting it just yet. I don’t have a big enough space in my home to baste quilts, so I take it to our shop and baste it there.
So in the meantime, I got started on ANOTHER quilt that will be a wedding gift! I saved some of the pink jelly roll strips from the Positively Perfect quilt to use on this one. This girl seriously LOVES pink; her wedding this summer is pink-themed. The bridesmaids are even wearing pink dresses! (I should know… I just picked mine up!)
I have been wanting to try out a Granny Square block, it seems like they’ve been popping up ALL over the quilting blogosphere! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try it out. I’m SO glad I did! I am LOVING Granny Squares! They’re so FAST and EASY to make, I got three done in just about an hour and cut out the pieces for a fourth. Here they are on my improvised design wall:
It’s going to be really fun coming up with new color combinations with this. I want all of the blocks to have at least SOME pink in them. This one combines some Cape Ann prints (pink) with Michael Miller (yellow):
Some more Cape Ann with a purple solid I picked up in the remnants bin:
And these are both Cape Ann:
So, three blocks down, at least 17 more to go! I hope this one comes together quickly. I want to have it ready for the bridal shower, which is just around the corner.
Have you make Granny Squares yet? What quilting design do you think you would use?
