WIP Wednesday

Hi there, hope you are having a good week! Wow - it is Wednesday and August!

Seems this week has flown by! Dear son and grandson were here for the weekend and then it was back to work. Had to pass on the Indy Jimmy Buffet concert last night :(  Friends said it was great fun as usual. And this weekend I have a wedding and a corn hole tournament/party! This leaves less time for sewing but I know summer is flying by and soon the days will be shorter and time outside with family and friends will be less.....

I did manage some sewing in the past week. I finished the rest of my Great Granny squares-- 4 more. I am going to leave it at 9 squares and hopefully get the sashing completed before Saturday and then the borders on Sunday. 

 ok....not sure what happened to the cropping on these block pics!!  
I am just learning photo editing and sometimes I forget to hit save I guess!

 Here is the layout I am thinking about

 Left over 2.5in squares...Looks like I will have some squares  for a scrappy quilt :)
Now if I can just get the rest of my scraps cut up! 

No progress on any of my other projects, but that is ok. Progress is progress. I have to remind myself t is not a race and pressure takes all the enjoyment out of it for me.

Happy sewing ! 

Linking up to:


  1. Your blocks look so great together. It is going to look fabulous.

    A corn hole tournament? We love playing that here, but have not heard of a tournament for it. Yes, summer is quickly coming to a close.

  2. Your granny squares are looking so good together. I am trying to resist adding a Granny Squares quilt to my never ending list of quilts to make!

  3. I love Granny Squares! I've got one a few quilts down on the to-make list. :) The predominantly blue one is my favorite!

  4. Your granny squares look fabulous, I love how the fabric placement changes the look of each block.

  5. Beautiful granny squares, Ginny...lovely colours and prints! Nice photos too ;)

  6. Your granny squares are gorgeous - love those bright colours!


Thanks for the comment! I love hearing from you!
