I am so excited to share with your Lori Holt’s new book, Great Granny Squared. I LOVE Lori’s books. She has such a great way with writing patterns and she does it again with this book. Her patterns are so easy to follow. They are great for beginner quilters to advanced quilters.
This book has 2 quilts, one table runner a pillow. It also has 2 bonus quilt label patterns that are super cute!!
You can go here to see some of Lori’s favorite notions and quilt supplies that will help you make these amazing quilts.
Fat Quarter Shop is hosting a Sew Along to go with the Great Granny Squared book. It starts on April 21st. Check out this post to get a list of what you’ll need. Lori designed this cute Mama Crochet Quilt pattern for the sew along. This is going to be so much fun and I hope you all join in.
Now onto my review. I chose to make the pillow but I turned it into a “mini quilt”.
As I have been telling you guys I am LOVING this mini quilt trend and I thought this would make a great addition to my mini quilt wall. Which now has 2 actual mini quilts and one wall hanging. I need to make some more mini quilts. I have a couple that I will be doing soon….Hopefully!
I used the Road 15 charm pack by Sweetwater that I had in my stash. I love the colors and I LOVE the way it looks added to my mini wall.
I quilted this using my walking foot and one of the decorative stitches on my Bernina. It was a lot of fun to quilt like this. And easy too. I think that on small projects I will try this again. I love how the back looks.
