Granny Attack!

Happy Monday! I think. Is Monday ever really happy? We are back to actual late winter/early spring weather instead of summer and it kinda stinks. I was really enjoying 80 and sunshine instead of 40 and rain. Oh well. It was nice while it lasted and theoretically it should come back at some point. It was a good weekend and of course it went too fast. It is nice to have a stretch of no visitors/traveling and actually get some relaxing time.

Anyway, I am going crazy with these little granny squares! I made myself take a break from them this weekend since I now have 15 done and I really needed to work on other things. I am aiming to make 10 more (since that is all the blocks I have scraps of white for) so I have 25 and can make a 5x5 quilt. I thought pictures of each of them individually would be a bit much, so I figured a few group shots will do.

My only problem is sashing. My blocks are not exactly square. I decided to just trim them 1/4" away from the points regardless of whether that is square or not and I think I'll just put a white border on each block and then square it up to 12.5" and put them together like that. I think it will look a lot nicer and let me square them up properly. Also, that will give me a nice 60"x60" quilt which sounds like a nice size. So that's the plan as of right now. I wonder how long it will take me to make the rest of them...I guess we'll see whether I get distracted by something this week or I use them to avoid something else haha.


  1. Generally, granny squares have not yet peaked my interest, but these look fun and happy. Good job. White borders sound like a good plan. :)

  2. They look really good together. You've gotten a lot of them done.
