Granny Square Goodness - Building Blocks Tuesday


We Bee Learning Granny Squares

I finally got to try out Granny Squares!  The Queen Bee for the We Be Learning Bee for June wanted these fun blocks in bright colors.  We used the tutorial here at Blue Elephant Stitches using 2.5 inch squares.  I had a few leftover squares of Good Fortune from the Gigantor quilt, so I made the one on the right, but then struggled picking fabrics for the other.  Orange is still bright in my book, but what to pair it with....I obviously ended up with purple and I assure you those purples are a little brighter in person.

I recently folded up my stash of Flea Market Fancy.  I originally thought a granny square quilt with those fabrics would be great, and folding them up made me think so even more.  So don't be surprised if you finally see me cut into my FMF this fall and do a little more granny square action.

So what have you been working on this week?  I want to know!

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!


Quilter in the Closet

Rules:

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading!

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
