Just as a heads up these are old picture on a new post today, but I have been thinking about Granny Squares this weekend. Tanya and I have been thinking about what baby quilts we wanted to add to our collection. It dawned on us that one of our favorite quilts to make were the 2 granny square quilts we made for our grandmothers. I started on this craze a 1 year and 4 months ago and thought that it was out of my system. Well I just want to warn every one, but they will be making a comeback in our house.
This past week was a successful one at our house I think I got 4 or maybe 5 more completed quilts in fact 4 of them are washed and laying on the desk waiting for time to go take pictures of them. Sadly this week is going to be a busy one for us. Tuesday is Jared's B-Day and Wednesday James graduates from high school (wow that makes me feel old thinking about it) I remember so long ago that final week of school thinking that I am free and could do any thing. Hum would it not be fun to be that free now?
Along with Granny Squares I want to do another of my 25 block quilts. We made that quilt for my mother and I think the next handful of baby quilts will be a mix of these 2 types. I am a fan of 2 1/2 inch blocks and my huge collection could use some cleaning out before my box runs over of them.
These 2 quilts were the first 2 I made. The pictures totally suck compared to more recent pictures, but the quilts were wonderful. I loved how we had all the various colors this is what we want to work on next for baby quilts.
Of the 2 square block quilts I like the first one better. The second one with the blocks not of the same share (5 X 7 rather then 5 X 5) felt a little over tall and not wide enough. Any way expect to see a few more scrappy things out of us in the next few weeks.
