Let's pretend it's still March 31, shall we? I've posted a link party below for the monthly jelly roll party. It's slated to run for 7 days. I'll pick a winner from the entrants next Wednesday, April 11th, to take home
Just a quick recap of the rules:
1) The project must be some kind of strippy project, not necessarily an official jelly roll
2) You must have worked on the project at some point in the past month.
3) The project must be at least a top in the blog post that you link up.
Anyways, back to business, these granny squares take an awful lot of time to construct, eh? I spent the lion's share of my crafty time in March kicking myself for not strip-piecing granny square blocks like Katy did.
Oh well, piecing them this way allowed me to use up both a charm pack and a jelly roll's worth of fabric, so it's all good in the end.
I also spent a fair amount of time bemoaning the fact that the local shops were out of Kona Ivory and being cranky about ordering what I needed online, since I would pay just as much in shipping as I would for the actual fabric. So my Granny Square quilt is sashing-less.
No matter how skinny I would have made the sashing, I just wouldn't have had enough fabric to sash everything. So instead, I have a nice healthy 4" (finished) border. And lots of mis-matched points. But if you imbibe enough and/or relax your eyes enough, those mismatched points fade away.
I've bought my backing, prepped my quilting designs, and even mopped the living room floor in anticipation of basting. Now it's your turn. Did you finish any strippy quilts/tops in March?
