They had me at Granny square

I love, love, love granny squares, which just about figures as my Mom (who is the crocheter in the family) hates to make them, so, I have none :( That is, until I discovered this tutorial!!

This is my all time favorite quilt block. Seriously, I can't wait to make more!

I tried it out last night and made these 2 blocks
The blue and yellow is going to be put aside to be used in a project for me, I'm just trying to decide between a table runner, another pillow cover, or..a couch snuggling quilt.

The flea market fancy version got another new to me treatment. I hand quilted it using the Pick stitch method.
The charm it adds to a project is just perfect, I see more in my future ;)
Here it is all stitched up:

While I was already sewing binding, I grabbed another project that has been just laying about waiting for me to finish it's binding too. I made this pillow cover last November/ early Dec, but as usual, since it was a personal project, it got put on the back burner.  But it's finished now and will be put to use this Christmas :)
