I finally finished a project! I've kind of been in a funk - I have been working on stuff, but never would seem to get anything done. Finally.... this Great Granny Squares Quilt is done! I first read about it here on Lori's blog. I've had the blocks made for quite some time, it just took awhile to put it together.
This is my favorite block.
Here's a close-up of one of the blocks, before it was quilted.
And here is the back...... all nice and crinkly. I had a heck of a time quilting this - my sewing machine was giving me fits. I machine quilted each of the great granny squares, then did quite a bit of hand-quilting - around each square, and 2 - 3 rows in the borders. I am just happy it lies flat....... I was afraid it wouldn't. Lots of bias edges in this quilt - I don't think I'll be rushing to make one anytime again soon!
This is ready for a new baby girl..... she is due to make her arrival in October - the first grandchild for a friend of mine.
