(I apologize for the poor picture quality it's a dark and dreary day here today!)
It's probably no big surprise that I chose a Granny Square for our block this week. They are simple and fun to sew. After the Bear's Paw block last week I think this will be a nice change.
You will need 25 ~ 1 7/8 inch squares.
You can layout the block any way you like. I chose to use 3 colors and a white background.
I sew my blocks into rows like this (on point). Then when I sew my rows together I just alternate the pressing directions. First row to the left, second row to the right etc...
Once sewn together you will trim your square up to 6.5 inches. Leaving 1/4 inch from your points to the edge of the block. This method does have waste but I didn't want to fiddle with set in triangles this week.
Here are all of the blocks together so far. I really love all of them together.
