Granny is finally Squared...or umm...quilted!:)

About three and a half years ago (hanging my head in shame) Round 14 at the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along was a Granny Square quilt.  
 We were supposed to use 2.5" squares but you know me...I gotta go against the grain and....
 ...I had a stack of 4.5" Hoffman 1985 batik squares already for piecing.  Why not?
 So Mega Granny was born. I didn't have enough to make two more squares so  improvised with scraps in the center. I like it!
  Chunky quilting is my fav and this was easy.
Especially when you don't have to mark the quilting lines!
Yeah for the seventh finish!

At the shop we have a new service project...
It's all about making quilts to hang in dialysis centers to bring a little smile to the faces of patients while they wait.
Don't you think Batman can help with his awesome strength?:)
Some Batman strength is needed to finish this puppy. It will be following me to the last quarter of this year's Finish Along!
Protein helps too!

Oh...forgot to point out the button up there....I'm going to have a quilt at the
My Wind Cave landscape will be in the National Parks Special Exhibit AND I will be at the show working the Webfabrics booth!!  
Our shipping manager/pal Kerry has TWO quilts in the same exhibit!
Come say Hi...hugs gladly accepted too!:)



  1. That quilt is beautiful, I especially like the centre. The idea of organ transplant quilts is great, so many people would be happy to receive an organ but so few are on a transplant register. How brilliant to have a quilt at the exhibition.....so proud of you x x

  2. My granny square is one quilt that I did get finished! It is currently in use on the couch, where DH sits if he can't sleep because he is too excited about something he is working on.
    Nice quilt :-) And I like the kidney idea.

  3. I love the granny square quilt! And the kidney quilt, my mother was on dialysis. It would have made her and her fellow patients smile I think!

  4. Beautiful finish - I love the softness that hand quilting adds!
