Great Day... Great Granny Along Day!

I have one to show and another one on the sewing table...
waiting for a little bit of un-sewing! I put the wrong size background
pieces on the last four corners. Yeash! 
But these are so fun to play with and nice to have right next to the machine...
so I can steal a few minutes here and there. 
Before ya' know it, a block or two are made!
Unfortunately, I am  Flikr impaired... so this won't be joining 
the others out there in Lori's and Jodi's group.

Here is my final block for my Rehab project.
I am excited to see it done and I have been trying
to find any other completed 
BOM projects like this one in blog land
to see ideas for finishing/setting the 12 blocks.

I had a few other things going on in the sewing room over the weekend too...
I used my leftovers from another BOM (that I am happy to have done)
to make some other blocks... these scraps are just too good to waste!
Some nine-patches, pinwheels and spool blocks... 
I just have a few more to go and I can start putting another 
Summer Fun project!

And over the weekend I got a start on another little 
"group project" that Nicole at Sister's Choice, along with Ms. Cupcake n Daisies and
the Stashmaster are hosting.
"SPOOLS"
It's just too cute not to do!

And then there's this...
a sweet little pile of blocks...
but I'm not saying what it's for...
not yet anyway!

Oh gosh...you have gotten so much done! I also am Flikr impaired...and I also can't multi-task, so that's why I never have more than one thing going on at a time. I shudder to think of the messes I'd make! :o\

Love your Granny blocks...those are just so, so cute. Hopefully one of these days I'll be able to join in with those, too!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Love your "dotty" mystery project. I have my dots all lined up waiting for the next. schnibbles...hope it suits, but if it doesn't it can wait for the next one...

Mary said...

They're all really nice but I love love love (!!!) the stack of fabrics for your spools! And I'm not one who picks out brights most of the time.

Oh, my gosh. You always inspire me (and get me into a lot of trouble). I want to make everything you're working on on. I've been on the fence about the granny square quilt, but may have just jumped to the other side. That's so dang cute.

Love your Great Grannies (what a fabulous idea that was!) I still wish I'd have gotten in on that FQ Christmas BOM - I love every block I've seen. I need to get that Spools pattern too - I do want in on that!

Nicole said...

I know what your secret project is, because I am making the exact same blocks right now!!
