Granny Squares

I've been captured doing the Granny Squares, tutorial by Jolene and I'm sure you've already seen hundred of Granny Squares. The funny thing is: they're all beautiful. I've been postponing making these because I wanted to finish the Siblings Together quilt first.
But alas, I'm only human.
I'll finish it next week.

The colour I've chosen for the sashing is not white. I'm not a fan of white in a quilt, if you really want to USE the quilt. So no Red Pepper solutions for me like shown here or here.  But then there's nowt so queer as folk!
Here's what I've done so far



 I think I've cought that bug ...

There's something else I'd like to share with you. Ellison Lane posted this yesterday and I agree: so much is all about the money. About advertising on blogs or Facebook, about making money.
About peer recommendations like when one blogger mentions a product to another: I've done that too, BUT (and that's a big but): I don't get money mentioning a product, that's because I'm really enthusiastic about it (Oakshott fabrics). I've only mentioned my Accuquilt once, because I think Accuquilt is a nice but very very expensive toy!
So .... Before I get carried away (LOL), here it is: (even though this is an advert as well ...)

 

And on this thoughtful note, I'm wishing you a wonderful, sunny and relaxing weekend!

  1. The granny square bug is very contagious. (Reminder to myself: be very careful not to catch it before having finished of some WIPs).

    I like your colors. It is always difficult to take a popular block and make it yours. I think you will succeed very well in this case :)

  4. I'm anxious to see your granny squares all put together. The green is really pretty. I was wondering about using a pale gray in place of the white.
