Finished Quilts

Granny goon

that's what my nieces call their gran (my mum) so that's what we call her now too.  I'm not sure she approves! 

I'm making a quilt for on of the wee man's little friends, one that she can use in the garden so I wanted to avoid white solids if possible.  Evie's mum asked for a kind of retro/vintage feel so I pulled some fabric and thought Granny Squares!  Here's how far I've got....

As part of the Charm About You Fugly Swap over at Lucy's, I received some Melody Miller scraps which I have used as centre square in each block - thank you lovely Amy for indulging my MM obsession!  I had some Kona Ash hanging around so went with that for the solid and I am pretty happy with things so far.  I'm going to add a dark blue and whitish square and probably a green floral with pink too.  The final quilt will have 16 blocks and some sashing - I'm thinking a thin white sash between the blocks and Ash for the borders to take it up to 40ish inches.  Do you think that the white  will work?

  1. They are gorgeous.

    I think they are perfect for your brief.

    I also think the thin white will be great and make the quilt pop in a fab way.

  2. Who on earth called MM fugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the granny blocks and the MM centres :)

  3. They looks great so far! Loving the fabrics. Of course white goes with everything =D

    I'm hosting a new swap over at my blog if anyone is interested please pop over for a look =D
