Design Wall Monday... Granny Squares!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway to celebrate 200 followers!  Open until Tuesday, March 13.  Good luck everyone!!!

I have been working away at more scrap busting.  Not only am I using scraps for the Farmer's Wife quilt along and I made my Wonky Scrappy Little Star quilt but now I am busting those scraps into Granny Square blocks.  I love these blocks!  They make me smile when I look at them up on the design wall.  Isn't that what a quilt should do?  Make you smile?  

This is a super easy block to make and it can be as scrappy as you like.  There are lots of great tutorials out there in blog land and Dana at the Old Red Barn  is hosting a granny square quilt along on Flicker.  

Have a super happy Monday.  Only one week until spring break for me.  Cannot wait!  And the spa day with my bestest card ladies was a blast.  My toes have never looked so lovely!  I almost had a quilting moment when asked to pick a polish colour.  I was thinking hmmmm, what would scrappy look like on toes??????

I am linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday.  Do check out what all the quilty people are up to.  It is just so interesting!  


  1. I wondered what this pattern would like with a controlled "scrap" look. This might be a way to use up some favorite scraps in a quilt. Love yours...

  2. Very pretty Granny Squares--I love the scrappy look too.

  3. Scrappy toes definitely - go wild child! And love the blocks!

  4. Great Granny squares!! LOVE the scrappy look.

  5. Love your granny squares. I need to start one of these quilts.

  6. Love the granny squares! It's on my to do list!
