So, in fulfilling two of the above goals, I have invited a couple of friends, Julia and Karen, to learn to use my quilting machine. We have had great times together and they are both now accomplished quilters! It has been so fun each week to see what they are working on and be inspired.
This is one of Julia's modern quilts. I love it because it is so colorful! The bright scrappy colors feel so happy.
Here are a few more links to Granny Square Quilts. This one has lots of food for thought and ideas of different layouts.
At this link, Giant Granny Square Block, Darcy makes 19 inch plus squares. She has instructions to make it from individual squares and clear instructions on trimming your finished squares.
This link, Another Granny Tutorial, uses all different squares in her granny squares and she has another link at the bottom of the page using jelly roll strips.
Branching out a little bit more are these links here: Moda Bake shop blueberry and here: Moda bake shop colorful. These links have different colorways and more rings.
Here is to choosing well how you spend your time! Have fun with Granny Square Quilts!
