A Finished Granny

Yay! I finished the Flea Market Fancy Granny Squares quilt! It's washed, dried and all crinkley!
I chose to bind it in red. The print has microdots. It's one of my favorites. (Please forgive the fold lines. I had the quilt all folded and ready to go when the sun decided to show itself and I thought I'd try for some half decent pictures!)

For the back I used the leftover Granny Squares I had from the strip sets.

I hope she loves it! Have a great weekend!

This is beautiful. I think I am going to use my FMF for a granny square quilt.

It is beautiful, and that red binding....one of my favorite fabrics. I bet I have 4 or 5 yards of it......and the really insane thing about it is that I only use it to make little hand stitched lady bugs. How much fabric does it take to make a lady bug you ask? A circle the size of a nickel, which makes the lady bug the size of the head of a large pin. Not sure if I have any pictured on my blog yet or not. Will have to get that done if the sun ever shines here for good pictures.

Kim said...

Lovely! I have to admit that I joined the granny squares quilt - along as a fill in while I waited for a fabric order, but the finished quilt now lives in our living room and I love it so much I'm thinking of doing another. Funny how some quilt patterns get you like that!

Erin @ Why Not Sew? Quilts said...

Thank you all so much!

bloomingpoppies said...

It's terrific!! I'm inspired to start quilting mine. Did you stipple it all over? I can't decide how to quilt mine. I've been leaning toward a basic stipple-I think you've just convinced me!!

Lori said...

How beautiful! This might be my favorite of all the "grannies" I've seen. LOVE LOVE LOVE this!
