I finished piecing my granny square quilt this morning and I must say that it was one of the more fun quilts that I’ve made in some time. I think that Frankie’s choice of fabrics had a lot to do with it. How can 1930’s feedsack fabrics not bring a smile to one’s face?
Here it is on my
design wall bed. Frankie had to do his usual close up inspection before he would give it his paw of approval.
I made a few changes to the design by adding cornerstones to separate the sashing strips and blocks from the same red dotted fabric that I used in the center squares of each block.
More changes will be made by adding prairie points to the perimeter after it’s quilted using the left over squares from the block construction. The binding will be from the same red polka dot fabric.
- Yep…works fine for relaxing...very comfortable.
- Told ya the fabrics would work well with this design.
I even managed to tidy up my studio when I was done…
but will leave the dusting for another day…cough, cough!
Then Mr. Painted Quilt, Mac and I spent about two hours outside raking leaves and doing other spring chores.
It’s going to be an early night! *yawn*
