This post comes with a warning.....extremely addictive! I've been adding to my Granny Square quilt. I LOVE making these little cuties!
Each square gives me the opportunity to add more and more color to the quilt. I have a list of other projects that need to be done, but I keep getting drawn back to this one. I have to be more disciplined about my priority list.
Twenty-nine blocks done......hundreds to go. I still have lots of Y-seams to stitch too.
I use a 1" acrylic hexagon template available HERE for my center. I've been cutting up my stash 1" at a time for the blocks. That's all you need, just 1" strips. I have a tutorial HERE for the larger blocks, but the same construction principle applies when making the smaller blocks.
On another note, there are a couple of Country Charmer kits available HERE at In Between Stitches in the red and green colorway. I selected the fabrics that are very similar to the fabrics you see here. It has the same look and feel of my original Country Charmer. This is a good time to start making this for Christmas! (I can hear the groaning from blogland now!) But we have to plan ahead when it comes to quilting projects.
It sounds like we are going to get a little relief from our drought over the next few days. A gully washer of a rain storm is predicted, and boy do we need the rain. Our situation is so severe, my cactus has been living in fear for the past few months.
I'll be stitching and enjoying every drop of rain this weekend. How about you?
