Great Granny Along

If you can believe it. . . I've gone and joined a Sew Along!

I don't usually join Sew Alongs because I'm rather pathetic at it and I don't especially like feeling like a failure. Any of you know what I mean? It has to do with following through on things and if I can't follow through then, I try not to join any type of Block of the Months, Sew Alongs, or Block Exchanges, unless I know for sure that I have the time and can actually accomplish the task I've signed up for. I just don't like being a flaky flake! Time for the fun stuff can be very elusive!


Well, here are the details. . .

The Sew Along is called The Great Granny Along and it was started by two of my long time friends and bloggers, Lori of Bee in My Bonnet Co. and Jodi of Pleasant Home. I was sooo excited about the sew along that I practically ran to join the Flickr group.

I'm having such a great time that I would encourage you to go HERE and join. No pressure, just a lot of FUN and once you make ONE block I know you'll want to make another. . . and another!!! I've already made 7 and I have 2 more blocks cut out  and ready to sew.  That's 9 Blocks and that's enough blocks to finish a small quilt as seen in Lori's blog post.

It's fun! It's fast! It's easy! Go Sign UP NOW!!!





For a little inspiration. . . here are the blocks I've made so far. . .











Have FUN making Great Granny Blocks
and I look forward to seeing everyone's blocks in the Flickr Pool.

When I'm done I think I'll have to make some Red, Black, White, and Grey Blocks.

The Possibilities are ENDLESS!!!

Just saw your blocks on the Flikr group site Kim. They are fabulous! I know they are addictive. I am making myself go slow to savor the fun. :-)
I am making mine half size to become a doll quilt.
