Great Granny Sew Along and Book Giveaway!!!

Hello! Welcome to the Great Granny Sew Along! 
Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet wrote another wonderful book called Great Granny Squared. We are going to be making a cute sampler called Mama's Crochet Quilt. Additional tips and instructions are provided for the sampler each week.

The PDF for this week's Filled Basket Block is HERE.



I enjoyed making this super cute block! It goes together so nicely. Pulling fabric for this one was fun, too.

I love the theme of the quilt! I enjoy crocheting and I really love the idea of combining the two.

The Great Granny Squared flickr group can be found HERE. Once you make your Filled Basket Block, upload a picture to the group to be entered into a giveaway for a pair of  Sullivan's 4" Heirloom Embroidery Scissors and a pack of Clover Point Protectors.

You will also need a copy of Lori's book. You can purchase it HERE and

*** I am also giving away a copy right here on my blog. Just leave a comment below and I'll pick a winner Wednesday~April 23, 2014 and have it shipped to you in time to make the Filled Basket Block and be ready for next week's block!!!


HERE is a list of the blocks and bloggers for each week!

Have fun!!!


Happy Sewing!
xo Erin

This quilt warms my heart with memories of my 90 year old Italian speaking grandma tried to teach me how to crochet. As the years went by, crochet would always flood my heart and mind of her and I. Now that I am learning how to quilt, this pattern is like a portrait of her and I.....vintage/modern. I LOVE this and thank you for creating it! Jo :-D
