I'm sure you've heard all the buzz by now about Granny Squares.
(if you are a quilter)
Well, I've been wanting to hop on that bandwagon for a while.
This week, I hitched a ride!
However....it's not just a Granny Square I'm doing.
It's a Great Granny Square.
Jodi from Pleasant Home
Lori from Bee in My Bonnet
are hosting a
Great Granny quiltalong.
You can look at everyone's hard work in the Flickr group
There are so many beautiful blocks.
It's a fun block to put together and a
great way to use up scraps.
(And I have a ton to use!)
If you're wondering what mine looks like,
well here it is!
I cannot wait to get the rest of them done.
It's going to make a beautiful quilt.
Another thing I did was
make a portable design board.
Lori gives a great tutorial
on this here.
The right side of my board is a little wonky.
That would be because it's where I burned myself with my hot glue gun.
(Children...do not try this at home)
But it's my first shot at making one of these,
so I will leave the wonky.
It just so happened that I had all the supplies needed to make one of these.
I could possibly be categorized as 'borderline horder'
I do love it and have no doubt I will get a lot of use out of it.
That's it for today.
you have until 11:59 PM tonight to enter my giveaway!
Enjoy your day!
