More Granny Squares

Not much sewing going on over here.  We are still working on our bathroom UGHH!  Next it is time to repaint the closet and bedroom.  I decided to get a little more involved in the process to move it along a little faster.   Can we hide the remote? lol.  

These are a few more of the Granny squares I have made.  The top one is  made from feed sack.  I thought it was time to  cut them up and make something pretty with them.  So  I thought I would do the edging in vintage white but as you can see in the picture there is more of a brown tone.  Not sure I like that?  This pattern uses 5 inch squares and you can find it over at Trish's from

These two blocks are from a Darlene Zimmerman's book Granny Quilt Decor.  I am using up some of my Lecien scraps for the petals.  

Look what I got in the mail this week a package from Heather.  Look at all the pretty's.  She is a girl that knows how to wrap.  

This is what I ordered.  One her tea towels.  Heather is so talented, I love how she does her tea towels.  Just look at the beautiful half Dresden plate flower and the vintage dollie all the way down to the crocheted edging.  If you have not been to Heather's store you are missing out.  You can go here to see all the goodness she hand makes.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and stays warm.

  10. Hi Donna,

    What sweet granny squares! I miss making them, and may need to make another quilt with them. I love the soft pastels and pretty florals in yours.

    I have a couple of Heathers tea towels and they really add that special touch to my kitchen.
