What's Up Wednesday: Blocks

Two more great granny squares are finished!
Almost all of the fabrics are Kate Spain Serenade, but every once in a while I throw in some scraps.

Block 2
This purplish block for instance has some leftover Olivia by Rosemarie Levin used in binding the Circle of Comfort quilt made last year.  

Block 3
 This orangey block is all from the Serenade charm pack purchased at Gruber's last summer.

First three blocks
I don't know how smart it was to take a picture of these white bordered blocks outside, but I like how they photograph against the bark.

Remember last week I said my mom is taking a beginner's quilting class?  Well, she was kind enough to send me a picture of her first block and said I could share on my blog.  Bravo Mom!!!!  Can't wait to see what block you learn today.

I won't be doing much sewing today as I have a ton of errands to run.  Maybe I'll spot some fun stuff for tomorrow's really random post.

What are you up to this Wednesday?


  1. Way to go, Mom! She's doing great! I love that granny square block with the brown borders!

  2. I love your GGS. The Serenade looks great, and isn't it nice to throw in a little something, something to mix it up?!? So glad Mom shared her looks great. You have created another monster...haha!!!
    Lots of love...Michelle

  3. Crushin' on your Great Granny blocks!

    Such beautiful colors!

  4. Oh, how I love your Great Grannies. I'm so obsessed with these blocks!
