My sweet friend, Trish, from Notes of Sincerity posted a tutorial for the Granny Square block the other day. I knew right away I had to try it. I love little quilt squares and this one measures 6 1/2" unfinished. The first one I made using my stash of Lecien's Flower Sugar. I was even able to incorporate the selvedge edge into the block, an idea I just saw on Kristyne's blog Pretty by Hand.
The blocks came together quickly and easily. Trish's directions were very detailed and I really appreciated the tip on how to measure and square off the block, something I struggle with at times. I hope to make a couple of blocks every time I sit down to sew and before long I'll have a pile of pretties to stitch together. Be sure to stop by Notes of Sincerity for other inspiring creations. Trish also has a good list of bloggers as well. She has become such a dear friend to me and it's so fun thatl she is venturing into block tutorials.
