Granny Squares Quilt... Finish!
I finished my Grannies in the Breeze quilt just the other day. I waffled a bit with the binding but am super happy I went with the turquoise gingham check print. I just love it! I hung it on a string for a bit on the grandmother nut tree behind the barn. Then I hung it on the clothesline. It was breezy again so I had to keep waiting for the quilt to come back to earth!
I straight line quilted on either side of each block. I am a big fan of that kind of quilting. Aurifil 50 wt in white. Backed with a lovely vintage sheet, this is one pretty quilt. I love this block! I will definitely make more grannies! I think they make really lovely baby quilts too. And other than the white sashing and the binding, this is another scrap quilt. This is the the third scrap quilt I have made this year and I still have overflowing scrap buckets. Seriously! What is the deal, people????? Scraps breed like bunnies and hangers!
And with this finish, I fulfilled my Just Three for April. Just saying. But more on that later!
Linking up with Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday!
