I need another project like I need another (fill that in as you like). I have seen on a couple of blogs that there is a granny square or great-granny square quilt along. The difference being that the great grannies have one more round on them.
Anyway, I have always like this block. I've seen variations of it, one was called the Chimney Sweep. It isn't a block that I am breezing through. I'm doing one at a time. You have to be very careful when pressing so that the rows don't stretch and distort.
I'm using Kona Natural for the centers and background and then my Civil War fabrics for the rest. For now I'm trying to be matchy-matchy with the colors in the CW prints, but I know that will, at some point, run out of coordinated combinations.
I know that I will end up putting sashing between the blocks in the Natural as well, and perhaps corner stones of different CW prints, but I can't decide if I like them straight or on point. Opinions???? Come on, I know you have them :o)
I can see this as an on-going project throughout the school year. If I get the pieces cut and put into their own special project box, I could get at least two blocks done each week (wishful thinking??)
Hope it isn't too nasty hot where you are.
