So, Friday I couldn't decide if I should stay on task with my red/turquoise star quilt....or start something new. And, I woke up Saturday dreaming about granny squares. Literally. In my dream I was cutting out different squares and comparing what colors would look the best together. In my dream, and in real life I decided mostly solid backround colors and very distinct color differences would make the best combination.
What do you think? This is what I have so far:
I think I sharted the link in the last post for the tutorial, but I'll share it again in case you don't want to scroll down. So anyways, I woke up thinking about granny squares and just dove right in. I made the two on the far right before the baby shower and then the rest last night and this morning. These are actually really dinky squares, mine came to 9 inches! The little squares are only 2.5 inches, which for me is a little too fiddly. I don't know how people do those postcard quilts!!! I might lose my mind if I did. Or not. Who knows? So, the baby shower was yesterday and I gave Kristin the quilt. I think she liked it, she said she really liked the fabric. Hopefully she will get a lot of use out of it!
I guess that's all that's new around here. Man, 2 day weekends sure do go fast! I was spoiled for too long....
