I spent the day getting my Grammy Squares quilts to this point. I filled in all of the side areas with black to make it rectangular. I used about ten different black fabrics that I've been collecting.
Then I started in on the borders.
It was together by dinnertime. What struck me as interesting about this quilt, is the fact that it is made up of scraps from all of my other quilts. From plaids, to checks, to stripes, I threw them all into the mix to achieve the look of a crocheted, Granny Square afghan. Since my grand kids call me Grammy, I had to name it Grammy Squares.
Mazey wanted to have all of you see her pose in front of a quilt. I can tell she is growing up because she didn't grab the corner of this one and run around the house waving it around as a flag of surrender with me in hot pursuit.
She really is golden isn't she? Mazey is the busiest puppy we ever had. She is such a rascal too. Don't let her angelic looks deceive you.....she is a handful of constant activity. She thought it was extremely fun to play with the rain pouring out of the downspout yesterday morning. I was not amused at 5:30am watching her get soaking wet while consuming every drop of rain flowing off the roof! But, it kept her busy for a few minutes. before she started chasing after pine cones that blew down during the night.
I left the borders nice and wide for the vine and hexagon flowers. There is still a lot to finish on this quilt, but at least it is to this point so I can work on the applique at night. I guess I need to design it first!
Have a wonderful weekend.
