Now that I am retired, I have the time and energy to join some fun quilt-alongs!! And this one looks like allot of fun!!
(this is Lori’s block from her tutorial)
Lori has a wonderful tutorial HERE on her blog to show us how to construct the suddenly popular granny block we will be sewing up.
The rules are simple! Make a granny block, or two or however many you want, and post them on the Flickr group called The Great Granny Along Group! You can JOIN this Flickr group by clicking HERE!
Jodi and Lori will be posting about the group throughout the summer! Come on… join us!!
Soooo, I had planned on using my Marmalade jelly roll to make Camille’s Spools Quilt. But I changed my mind when I saw these granny blocks!!
So, I subcut all the 2 1/2” strips in the jelly roll into 2 1/2” squares and sorted them into piles.
Yogi was fascinated with all this cutting, of course!!
I also cut a ton of 2 1/2” strips from my chosen ecru background fabric and subcut them into the 3 1/2” pieces and 5” pieces needed for each block.
Sooooo, I am ready to start sewing up my granny blocks!! Hopefully tomorrow!!
What are you sewing on???
