Enough resting and recuperating from Christmas. It's time for me to get back to quilting! This block all started when I discovered a bag of 1" strips tucked away in a drawer.
I bought a 1" hexagon acrylic template and started piecing. Before I knew it, I had a 6" block.
The final row will always be black.
I Y-seamed these together and I have the beginning of my Grammy Square quilt. It reminds me so much of an afghan made from Granny squares. But my little grand kids call me Grammy, so Grammy it is.
It's going to include every color of the rainbow, separated by different black fabrics. I think it will make the colors really "pop" and I don't have to worry about colors touching each other since they are separated by the black. I don't want the different colors to duke it out, I just want them to be nice to each other.
I have a feeling this will be a "work on it when I feel like it quilt." It's one of those where I don't need to think a lot about each square. If I make a couple of squares each day and sew them together, this it going to grow into a beautiful quilt. You know what they say, "A block a day keeps the doctor away."
This is the same idea as my Heartfire pattern but this square is tiny. Click HERE to see the Heartfire tutorial. But remember, the strips are 1" stitched around a 1" hexagon center.
This is one of many projects I have going at the same time. I'm never at a loss when it comes to quilting projects. The only problem I have is deciding which project I want to work on. It's all good!
