Granny Squares have taken over the building

 Today I want to start off and say sorry to http://grammieq.blogspot.com/ I won a fugly bundle from them and I thought I had posted about it already but just realize I forgot too.  Or I am posting twice about it not sure which.
 Today I cut a 2 1/2 inch strip off every single FQ that I have saved up (while the ones I had not already done in the past) and as you can see their is a pile of them.

While I was doing all the cutting today I ended up watching the first 5 shows from the show Jericho if you have never watched this show before you may want to check it out it is interesting.
 Here is a close up thought it looked cool so had to post it.
 I also finished sewing together my brothers queen size rag quilt.  Rebecca my daughter even sewed X's in the last 20 or so blocks while I was cutting the above strips.  My wife, Rebecca, and myself each sewed some on this project.  It will not be completed (we still need to cut the edges of about 1/2 of it and wash it) for a couple more days but my brother has been pestering me for this one so it was a needed thing to get done today.
 Rebecca spent some time today also sorting all of my 2 1/2 inch squares into piles and then putting them into bags to keep them all strait.  After sorting all of them she decided I had to do my pink blocks today.
 I ended up with 2 5 x 5 blocks in pink today.
And 5 of the Granny Square blocks.  I now have squares cut for maybe 5-6 more colors sets and we even found a few more green, purples mixed in so may end up with another block or 2 their also.

My wife made the comment though that maybe we will have to make more then 2 for the grandmothers maybe with luck I will get to make one for me.

Love those blocks! Rebecca looks so cute sorting for you. It's great the way you are all making quilting a family affair. Another not-ugly group of fabrics. What are you doing with the strips?
