Designing, Sewing, Quilting QUILTS!!

Great Granny Square Quilt is Done!

My Great Granny Square quilt Another May finish!  This quilt was started on a whim and I love it when I actually finish!  After checking out Great Granny Square quilts on Pinterest and other blogs, I decided to add cornerstones and binding with a green fabric from my stash.  I tried scrappy cornerstones but the same color looked best to me.

All the fabric was from my stash of 2 1/2″ or 5″ squares plus lots of white remnants.  My quilting buddy, Candace, decided to set her blocks without cornerstones.  Here’s a pic of hers before the binding.  The background fabric is white, my indoor lighting does not do it justice!Candace's Great Granny Square quiltThe block quilting was inspired by a Pinterest pinner who made potholders out of her Great Granny Squares.  After some trial and error, I managed to figure out a path for stitching with the longarm without having to break my thread!  detail back

I love the stitching and did the same thing on Candace’s except for the outside edge fill.
