WIP Wednesday

It's all about bad weather and boredom the last few days!
Lots of rain...and then more rain..
waiting for fabric...
so I joined The Great Granny Along!!
 

and
the granny blocks have been on my radar ever since I first saw them appearing in blogland.
I resisted....until I got tired of waiting for fabric to arrive!
Deep in my closet was a big pile of Flea Market Fancy and a very tiny pile of Katie Jump Rope. I also found a piece of white on white fabric that I think
my aunt gave me when she was destashing.
A plan was born ;-)
It's a lot of fun doing these granny squares and these blocks have an extra round.
They finish at 12"
I'm going to call this one..
Who's Your Granny?

I did the first 2 blocks Monday.


Then I did 3 blocks on Tuesday!
It's goes so fast once the squares are cut.
Everything is 2.5", so it would be great to do with any pre-cuts.
None of my fabric is precuts, so I had to cut it all, but still went very quickly.
So, that brings me to 3 WIP's
and NO finishes!
However, everything is using fabric I already had on hand.....well..I did have to order more Kona navy, which is why I was waiting and bored!!
It's all good though!

Oooh, love those blocks, Patti! I've been thinking of using my Flea Market Fancy in some granny blocks. So glad to see that they look great in it. :)

Those blocks are such happy blocks!

Love the title of the quilt. Look forward to seeing it put together. I'd like to make one too!

Those blocks are going to make a super cheerful, scrappy quilt!

Patti, they look SO great. I just love that extra round of blocks to make the granny just a little bigger.

Taryn said...

I love these granny squares! They are so cheerful I have been able to resist granny squares so far, but I don't know how much longer I can hold out! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

They look gorgeous! I'm having trouble typing because I'm still giggling over "Who's Your Granny?" Love it.

Mary Ann said...

Fabulous blocks and you used some of your stash fabric...well done:)

Regina said...

Your blocks are very nice. I've been resisting these blocks, but I do have a box full of 2 1/2" squares......

Dolores said...

Have fun making those granny squares.

sarah said...

Wow! I love the colors and prints of your blocks!

applepiepatchwork said...

Oooh, your fabric choices are fabulous! I can see how those blocks would be addicting. If only I wasn't already committed to so many things already.

Kristy QP said...

Your blocks are looking great! I love seeing how varied this pattern looks in different fabrics.

Benta At SLIKstitches said...

Looking good, that navy s taking a while, how frustrating!

Susan Being Snippy said...

I love crochet granny squares and am currently working on a stack of granny quilt blocks, too. I am loving the colours you have incorporated in your blocks!

LynCC said...

"Who's Your Granny" - I love it! :D I've seen a couple people working on these, and really love the way they work out. Have fun!

Sheila said...

These blocks are wonderful so colorful and happy and I have this on my list to make just haven't had time to get to it just yet.

Jeanette said...

Your blocks are awesome-I especially love the last one with the green and coral. I made 3 of the smaller granny square blocks but then got busy making inventory for my craft fair. I may have to return to that little box of squares!

Karen said...

I have been watching so many people make these blocks and really love the way they look. I am not surprised that were were tempted to join in. I love the variety of fabrics and colours you are using. They are looking wonderful.

Sarah Craig said...

Pretty blocks! I'm tempted to join in, too - soon I hope!! Whoop whoop!!
