Granny Squares

I started granny squares last summer. I worked on it occasionally and now it's a top.  The fabric was a Moda layer cake called, "Botany" that had been gifted to me long ago.   I've been preoccupied and have neglected blogging. I'll spill why soon as I hate to jinx it.  Please NO guesses!  Just keep positive thoughts and vibes going for Quilt Hollow.

I am not familiar with that line of fabric. Sort of a 50's vintage look. You made good use of the layer cake. I sometimes hate to cut up the pieces in one of them.

Mary said...

Don't normally like quilts made from pre-cuts, but yours is a beauty. Please show us again after you quilt it.

Karen in Kentucky said...

What size quilt can you make from a layer cake? I have one I bought on sale, but wasn't really sure what I would do with it.

Also, just wanted to say the quilt on your quilting frame is gorgeous. Love the backing you selected for it.
