Last weekend while the Jubilee celebrations were being televised, I wanted something mindless to sew. Something that would be easy to put down as I went to the T.V. for the highlights and easy to pick up while the commentators filled the air time. So I started a granny square quilt and I have to say I fell for it hook, line and sinker! What a fabulous pattern that easily chewed through the scraps and made up to a decent size quickly.
Lynda recently posted about a slight variation on the construction method in that you treat the inner 9 patch as one unit and then the four corners are made and then sewn to the 9 patch and I have to say that was sheer brilliance and made the construction so quick compared to the original instructions.
The quilt as it stands measures 40” x 50” and I can’t decide if it needs a border? I’m almost tempted to say it looks done especially if I put a nice bright pink or red binding. What do you think?
Until next time....
