wednesday wip - a finished top



Like many others, I fell in love with Jolene's Granny Squares, that she so kindly shared with us in her tutorial.


I like the colorful and playful squares. And I was lucky to have precut some 2.5" squares for my Tokyo Map quilt. So I just had fun playing with these blocks:


My hip to be square top finished up at 46" by 57". I used Kona Snow for the background.



And talking of squares. There's something about those simple shapes. I have started a new quilt, for someone special. Inspired by several beautiful quilts on flikr. The tutorial is generously shared by Bonnie.


Wish you all some happy piecing this week...

Love your "Hip to be Square"!! At first glance, I thought there were just a few fabrics in each block. Then I discover there's more. What fun!

I'm feeling the itch to stitch when I'm trying to stay focused but it's so hard when I see these granny squares.
