Design Wall Monday 07/23/12

I'm kind of all over the place with my projects this summer.  I see so many things online that I want to try and usually never do.  Now I seem to be trying everything and not finishing much!  Above is what is on my Design Wall today.  I've been seeing the granny square blocks on lots of blogs and made a mental note that I wanted to try it out.  Then I saw Lori @ Bee in my Bonnet and Jodi @ Pleasant Home (sorry - links not working today) were hosting a Great Granny Quilt Along with a tutorial and lots of inspiration.  I had a free afternoon, so I decided to make one.  I used leftover fabric from a Jelly Roll (except for the brown).  It went together perfectly. The edges are on the bias, so I'll have to be careful not to handle it too much.  I did starch it before I squared it up - I think I'll be fine.  This will be a great scrap buster if I keep up with them!

Be sure to check out Judy L's newly remodeled blog to see what is on everyone else's Design Walls today!

Everyone seems to be jumpin' on that granny square bandwagon, and seeing all of the fabulous blocks that are coming out of it is making me understand why! What a great way to use up those extra bits and scraps. Fun!
