Granny Square Happiness

Posted on November 04, 2012 by Jenn Thurston | 1 comment

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!

Do you have any current pictures I’ve been looking at your site now for three hours and reading the comments.I didn’t know how close to me you were until I googled fabric stores I live in Mount Holly can’t drive anymore due to a motor vehicle accident six years ago but I’ve made my daughter a queen size quilt that needs to be quilted I have the top ,back and batting just not enough room and not good enough to quilt it so I was reading about your longarm service just what I needed.So I’m going to get my friend to bring me up there with it so you can help me out with it. I’m also interested in any classes you might have coming up I’ve only been quilting for about a year don’t know how to use a walking foot or free motion but this past Christmas I gave everyone something I quilted I’m just glad I found a place like yours close to me.Look forward to meeting everyone.Thanks Emily Engle
