Granny squares are so fun & traditional and you can use different color combos for a new look each time.
Or you can add a little twist.
Candy Cane Hershey Bars & a Christmas version of the great granny square quilt.
With a kitty twist.
My quilty kitty Roo was my inspiration for this fun project. She is always making herself comfy right in the middle of my quilts.
Whether they are done or not.
I made 19 great granny square blocks, one barn cat mini, used red swiss dot for sashing & a basket of my favorite Kate Spain Christmas fabrics.
No adjustments needed for the Barn Cat mini ….. he snuggled right in perfectly with the great granny square blocks.
Meowy Christmas to all & to all a cozy quilty night!
It’s the holiday season and as crafters & makers we are all trying to squeeze in as many homemade things as we can. Don’t forget to take your time and enjoy making your quilts.
Life will happen. You may run out of thread when you least expect it. The real clock won’t match up with the clock in your head. Your four year old may decide she wants to switch bedrooms “right now” ….. or maybe you just need to make dinner, give a little snuggle or do a little laundry.
It’s not a competition to see who can make more quilts, or sewing bags, or gifts ….. it’s a little part of us we put into our work and I promise it will be worth the time, love & energy you put into it. Even if it takes a little longer than expected.
Three of my dearest & talented friends shared their granny square projects today too! Go take a peek!
