Mini Granny Square Quilt Blocks

May 22, 2015

My bee blocks from 2014 have been gathered.  I've laid all the pretties out and, of course, decided I can't make anything easy on myself.  So more work it is!
I've decided I need to sew another 36 mini Granny square blocks to go along with the bee blocks.  I plan to make a border out of the minis.
It's a perfect use for charms and mini charms.  I'm using scraps and a mini charm square pack of Cotton + Steel basics for the centers.  I've used quite a few Laura Gunn Painter's Canvas prints too.
I figure this is a good summer project when I'm trying to squeeze in little bits of sewing while the kids are off.  Below you can see the difference in scale of the original block (left) and the mini (right).  The originals are 13" and the minis are 7.5".
These are so cute!  If you like these blocks, Lori Holt has a whole book decided to the Great Granny block.  Those would be fun to make too. Pin It

  1. What fun granny square blocks such great color combinations! I can kind-of tell the scale of these mini guys from the first couple photos. I don't know about you, but I find photographing and indicating scale of my smaller projects is rather hard!
