Granny Squares & Blogger's Block of the Month


I could hardly wait to make another granny square block--I was just going to do a blue/grey combination and at the last minute added in the organge...love this mix of color! I already have a plan for block 4, too!


Saturday was Amy's day for Jackie's Blogger's Block of the Month.  I love her block and think I could make a whole scrappy quilt using just this block (just another idea to add to the list)!  Anyway...for her block tutorial you can go here, and for a list of all the blocks/tutorials and their links go here.



Here is my little collection of blocks so far...can't believe we are at the half-way point with this quilt already!

Hey Sherri! I'm Roger Oxborrow's daughter. I didn't even know you had a blog. I've been looking into quilting websites for a few months. It'll be fun to see what kind of designs you come up with. Give Aunt Phee and Uncle Bob a hug for me! :)

Sherri, the orange really does look great with the grays. Nice collections of blocks you have there! So far I have resisted the granny squares, but I can tell I'm about to cave to the temptation.

Love your pile of blocks. I need to get my new BOM made before I get behind. Love the orange mixed with that blue.

Sherri, I am hooked on the granny square blocks also. When I made my granny square quilt a couple of years ago, I didn't crochet. Now I do but I still love this block as a quilt block.

Great blocks. So inspiring. As for orange ~ it always seems to find it's way into my quilts. Love it!

Beautiful granny squares! Looks like you made 2 of the Bloggers Bom blocks this month, they look great! I posted mine today also.

Your blocks are all awesome! I especially love these granny squares. I love the one you just made with the orange in it. Very cool!

Jenny said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the addition of orange to the gray-blue block - it makes that block come to life. Those Granny Squares are sooooo addictive, aren't they???!!!

Letterpress said...

These are all adorable! I want to make a pile of fun squares and see them all arrayed. Can hardly wait to see the quilt top!

I love all of your blocks, Sherri! I've been cutting 2.5" squares and now I need to actually star sewing some together!
