Granny Square Quilt Along
If you spend much time in blog land than you have no doubt run across pictures of this amazing Granny Square quilt from Blue Elephant Stitches. Something about it seems to resonate with me and many, many others. The scrappy patchwork-ness about it. The bright happy colors. The fact that it indeed looks like crocheted granny squares and yet it's a sewn patchwork quilt.
As we were kicking around ideas for the next quilt along over in my flickr group (By the way, to date we've made eleven quilts over there. My stars! Eleven!) Quilt Dad, John, suggested this quilt and we all immediately jumped on the idea. I contacted Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches to see if she minded we do a quilt along with her block tutorial and she was gracious enough to encourage it.
Please say you'll join me and the 1,600 others in our flickr group as we start our Granny Square Quilt Along on March 1, 2012. There are already some options and fabric requirements listed so get on over there and check it out!
A special thank you to Jolene for letting our group attack this quilt like a bunch of hungry hyenas. It's going to be a blast.
