Bright Granny Square Update!

I had two goals for January, the first was to finish the quilting and binding on my postage stamp.  I finished that, which I have shared with you!  To read my post about my goals, you can see it here!


My second goal was to finish the top of my granny square quilt.  I need 20 blocks for a twin size quilt (with borders and sashing).  I got a little side tracked with my scrappy trip alongs.  I still would have been able to finish it though, but I ended up being out of town for two weeks for my uncle's funeral.  I really wish I had taken it with me, but I just did not think about it and did not plan on being gone for two weeks!  I did get three more blocks done today however.  That brings my count up to sixteen with only four more to go!
Of course I had help, Tiger's tail is like velcro and sent pieces flying everywhere!  It took me five minutes to find that last yellow square!  (No, I don't eat at the table, when I have company over I scrub the table and use a tablecloth!)
I have really been enjoying piecing my blocks on my hand crank.  Let me give you a hint.  When you go to take your bobbin out, make sure your needle is in the "up" position!  LOL  I was tired and could not get it out, such a "duh" moment on my part!
I'll have to do a better job on my goals for February, I'll share those goals with you on Friday!

P.S.  Sorry about the awful pictures, I had to use the bed to lay out my blocks and I have terrible lighting in the bedroom. My ButtonI also linked to Patchwork time's Get it done.

One done and one almost done is good with all the other things you had going on. I want a hand crank SO much.

Isn't that like a Trip Around the World?

Missy Shay said...

Brenn, you are a no reply blogger so I hope you see this! A great granny square is different from a trip around the world, here is my scrappy trip around the world http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2013/02/feline-friday-and-february-goals.html
