I've been a good girl this week by spending a bit of time arranging my 1.5" scraps to make more granny square quilt blocks.
Why? To make a king-size quilt of course. Don't laugh (well, too hard, anyways ;o)
Okay, so it's not as if I haven't had moments of thinking the idea is totally crazy. I mean, c'mon 5" blocks? Then I make a block and fall in love all over again with the scrappy goodness of these pretty little things and my hope is revived and I think maybe, just maybe, this isn't crazy after all.
You know my weakness when it comes to fabric?
Totally smitten with every bright colour that exists. No surprise to see the rainbow assortment of blocks I have going on then, right? ;o)
The scary part of it all? How long since my addiction with making granny blocks began.
I have Jolene to thank for this addiction (thanks, Jolene!!!).
Joining the FAL at the beginning of the year, I thought would encourage progress on my crazy idea of turning scrappy 5" blocks into a king-size quilt. Welll... great idea, but I've not been diligent in taking action like I should. Still I want a quilt to go with these huge pillows made out of tiny granny blocks. Which I LOVE.
Currently, I'm up to 60 blocks. Time to consider having a weekly quota of blocks for me to make. Cause these grannies are just begging to become a quilt. ;o)
