I put together my granny squares quilt top yesterday!
This has been such a fun "work in progress."
I could make these blocks all day--
& I have enough scrap fabric to do just that!
When I trim up fabric scraps, I usually try to make them fit into 2 inch squares or 1 1/2 inch squares -- and I have lots of 1 1/2 inch squares! My Granny Square blocks are made with 2 inch squares, but I wanted to use up some 1 1/2 inch too. So I set them on point, trimmed them to 2 inches, and then made 2 inch sashing, too. I'm planning on hand quilting this beauty . . . someday!
And I have so many squares left over that I'm tempted to take 2 sides of the sashing off and make this quilt a little (or alot?!?!) bigger.

The sashing is super cute. I love Granny squares- they're so much fun!ReplyDelete
So cute with the little squares in the sashing. Great idea!ReplyDelete
What size do you cut your triangles? The tutorials I've seen call for squares of white that you trim down. I think your way might be less wasteful of yardage.ReplyDelete
