Warning : Granny Quilt Overload





Please excuse the picture overload.  I am just really in love with these blocks.  It is a very old block design block with some modern fabric.  If I would have had enough material, I would have made this big enough to fit my bed.

 



I used Moda Circa 1934 jelly roll to make all the granny blocks.  Too easy!  Just cut them up into  2.5" squares.


 I decided to sash the blocks in the solid ecru and then add a little leftover fabric square in the corner.


And then to make it the perfect snuggling size, I added a 2.5" border of green polka dots and 6.5" border of black coordinating fabric.   It is almost 6 feet square.



I am working on the back and a couple none quilting projects.  I hope to finish this one up before the end of the month.  We will have to see.


Glad you dropped by!

  3. I made one myself and kept going till the jelly roll was gone and I made nearly 60 squares. I love how you can take a traditional pattern and make it new with mod fabrics. I am so into mod that I can't get enough fabric for it!
