So, I know I said I was going to explain my new fabric line, and I really am going to (soon!), but I got a little sidetracked with all this Granny business going around.
To my knowledge, it all started with this amazing quilt made by Jolene over at Blue Elephant Stitches. She always has the cutest quilts! I decided I would make one for Ava, since I haven't made her a quilt yet. I know....it's a shame since she just turned 3! I love the traditional, timeless look of the Granny Squares, so I thought it would be a perfect choice for her. And in red, pink, aqua and gray of course. ;)
So far I've made 6 and boy are they addicting!
The combinations are endless, which makes it easy to want to do another...and another.... Plus, they are pretty simplistic in they layout because you only need two colors (i have 3 in some of mine) and you arrange the colors in a specific way. One color for the outer squares and then a second color for the inner squares. So, although there are alot of options on fabric and color combinations throughout the quilt, when it comes to each individual block, it's limited. Not a lot of room for over analyzing everything....which is what I tend to do.
So, if you DON'T want to be addicted to something (else!)....
DON'T make a Granny!
And DON'T say I didn't warn you!
