Grannies in the breeze...
It was a really lovely day today. Not only did I get the top of my grannies all together but I declared war on the creeping buttercups encroaching on the flower beds. Don't get me wrong, I love buttercups. I just don't like them in the flower beds!
So here are the grannies out for a turn on the clothesline! I think they are looking pretty spiffy. I sashed the blocks in 2.5" strips and repeated the white sashing in the 2.5" square cornerstones. The borders are 5" strips broken up by a little bit of pieced leftover granny squares. I actually took some leftover squares and cut them down to 2" squares and then pieced them on point with some of the leftover setting triangles from the block construction. I needed to do that so they would fit in the 5" borders. Have I just made this really complicated? I hope not! I still need to give the whole top a good press! Woo hoo! I think I can enter this in Stitched in Colour's Scrap Attack linky party next week. Rachel says you can enter a finished quilt or a top. It will be a complete festival of scrap-happiness!
I do so like this quilt!!!
I must say a big welcome to all my new followers! Welcome, welcome! I also want to say how much fun it was to have Swoon on Quilt Story yesterday! That was most exciting!
Have a super rest of your day! I am off bright and early to a big quilting and sewing trade fair tomorrow morning!!!!! I cannot wait!
Linking up with Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday!
