Granny Square Happiness

Posted on November 04, 2012 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

Have you noticed Granny Squares are everywhere in the quilting world?  I definitely have noticed, and I've been dying to make a block or two.  So go figure, I had some scraps left over from a previous quilt (if there is one thing I can tell you about myself,  it's that I hate to see my fabric scraps go to waste and sit in a dark closet all by their lonesome).  So I made a block, and really loved how it turned out.  So I kept at it and made this small baby quilt for some friends of ours.

The line is Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille.

Here's a close up of the embroidery.  Charlee Ann such a sweet name that I had to put it in a fun whimsical font.

One of my favorite features of this quilt is using different color strips for the binding, no two strips are the same giving it such a playful feel.  (Also goes back the fact I avoid putting anything in my scrap basket!)

One last picture... I used floppy daisy as the quilting design with a white thread to not take away from the quilt.  I thought with the bright colors in the fabric the design was perfect.  I hope little Charlee enjoy's her new quilt!
