Great Granny Quilt

Here is my progress on the Great Granny quilt (Lori Holt's design). I decided to use the figure 8 to fill in the sashing strips. I did SID around each block.
I left the triangles around the GG block unquilted. I thought they were really too small to put feathers into. I was so excited to get this finished. I took it off the zipper leaders. I trimmed side one. I trimmed side two. I started to trim side three...but wait. See what I noticed. Oops.
How did I miss that? I forgot to quilt that last sashing strip. Now what? I had already started trimming that side. I CAREFULLY pinned it back on the machine.
I had to be very careful while quilting that strip. My pinning job worked. It is now finished. It is trimmed and ready for binding. Whew. Is there no end to my stupid mistakes?

I am linking up with Anything Goes Mondays, Freemotion by the River, and Quilt Story: Fabric Tuesday (links at right). I am also linking with Freshly Pieced, found here.
Linking up with Sew Many Ways linky party, found here.

Update: January 2, 2015: Finished this quilt with Kona Cotton Coffee for binding.




Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Amazing how such an unassuming little design can change the look of things. I love this! Yes, I am also one for those amazing mishaps where you stand in front of it and think..what the..??!! I have learned over time to just accept it and run with it.
