Dammn... !! I've just noticed that my blocks with the green and yellow is peiced wrong!!!! :( uhhhh! I'm kind of running out of fabric colour combos now? but I've been taking my inspiration from 'real' granny sqaures blocks from Yvestown - here! Though I'm organising a little fabric swap with another online blog pal atm so I think the fabrics she's going to send me will give me some new prints to add to the mix! Can't wait. Are you all enjoying the granny sqaure madness?? I'm planning on going the whole hog with 20 blocks yikes! wish me luck. Jessie, xo

Granny Sqaure Chic
I've given in, I couldn't resist these delightful granny sqaure blocks from Jolene. They've been popping up all over the blogosphere for a little while now, and they've been on my to do list since the tutorial was posted :) Being a new quilter I thought this would be a perfect project for me, and I think it's proving so :D it's so nice working with larger peices after my mini quilt. I decided to make the four outer squares the same fabric, and doubles for the other peices as I didn't want to have such a scrappy look (mainly because I don't have enough fabric to do just that!) So far I've used a mix of modern prints, 30's repros and a few vintage sheet scraps as well! It's fun mixing and matching.
