Finished Granny Squares and a New Quilt Top

Making the squares was fun. They are portable and can be easily picked up and put away but be warned, the sewing in of loose threads is a nightmare.
I think I will do some more crochet but I am searching for a less tedious finish.
I have been slowly building up my collection of Moda Happy Camper and Punctuation fabrics.
Yesterday I pulled them out and built this little quilt around a set of 5" squares I bought on sale.
As usual I went to Judy Hopkin's Book,"501 Rotary Cut Quilt Blocks," for a block that would fit.
It took me most of the weekend to get the top put together.

As usual the floor was a 'no go zone' which was a bit of bad luck because my husband was doing the vacuuming and the areas where I was sewing was in desperate need of cleaning.


  1. Fabulous granny squares finish Melissa, but I love that new quilt top. Great pattern and gorgeous fabrics. You need a design wall you know!!! xo

  2. Lovely granny squares but I can imagine that the sewing in of the loose threads is a bit of a bore. Maybe next time you'll do it as you go, so you don't have so many at the end. Love your quilt too! What fun fabrics you've collected. Looking forward to seeing how you'll quilt it.

  3. Both of your projects are happy and bright. Congratulations on your finishes. I love all of your work!

  4. Love your granny squares.
    In the last block I see some American jane fabric called Happy campers. I just love that fabric. Beautiful quilt!

  5. Such a cheery quilt top, and I have always had a soft spot for granny squares... yours are lovely!
