Remember this guy from back in March? Oodles and oodles of granny squares, all made with the scrappiest intent? Well, after a long time sitting waiting to be bound, he's finally finished!
I was crazy when I took the large center bee block granny squares and decided it needed a border with smaller granny squares. I worked on all those 7" grannies for about a year. It takes forever when each block is cut individually...
After all the grunting I did during the process, I'm happy to say to it was worth it. I'm falling more and more in love with scrappy quilts each time i see one.
(Probably a good thing considering I have SO many scraps. This quilt didn't end up even making a dent in them.)
I went bold and chose the dark navy Add It Up print from Cotton + Steel for the main border. At first, I was really concerned it was too deep of a color with the Kona White, but I have to admit, the darkness makes the blocks really pop. The gamble paid off. It shows off the quilting nicely too.
It's days like these when I think "how did we ever live without this quilt?"
