In between adding borders to my braided herringbone quilt, and working on my "String of Pearls" table runner, I stitched rows of 2 1/2 inch squares together and ended up with a couple of blocks. What a fun and easy way to get started on a quilt completely out of my scraps! I figure I will need 20 of these to make a quilt, so I'll just keep laying out the little squares and stitching them together as I work on other projects.
I found the perfect background fabric for my String of Pearls tablerunner - Kona Tarragon. It was even on sale at my local Hobby Lobby. I haven't ever worked with a Kona cotton before, and it is lovely! It has a beautiful texture and weight to it. I am really happy I went with this color and fabric.
Oops! Oh well, luckily I have plenty of fabric! I'll just keep going! Happy sewing, everyone!
I have been tempted to start a granny square quilt. I like your idea of cutting 2.5 squares and setting them aside as you are cutting other things. Thanks for the hint!
I love your granny squares. Makes me want to go get my 2.5 inch squares out right now!
I love the idea of using 2.5" blocks as leaders and followers to make granny squares. Those are some really cute blocks.
Love both sets of blocks! Great colors.
cute grannies, and love the lime with the polkadots- glad you have more fabric!!
Thanks for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
