I'm a bit behind the times...Oh well. I have been wanting to make one of these quilts for a while. When they came out I saw so many that were just stunning. But I had (and still have) a giant list of quilts I wanted to make...so it just sat there, on my list. But my mother told me that a quilt needed to be made, a quilt for a very special person in my life...and she was right. I knew the granny square quilt was the way to go.
I decided to use the tutorial by Blue Elephant Stitches on Moda Bake Shop. It calls for a jelly roll. I didn't want to use a jelly roll, so I purchased some yardage and cut that into my 2.5 x WOF strips.
Then I sewed them all together...
And dredded ironing the seams... But then they were in pretty rows.
So I cut them, sewed a bit more, and now they are granny squares!
Twelve more to go... then I will trim them.
