It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! One more week to finish up your Christmas gifts and I am so happy to be able to share a few ideas that you might want to use. I'm also super excited to be a part of the Great Granny Twist Blog Hop !! I just love sewing along with Miss Bee.
If you have the book, you know that the Great Granny Square is made up of 4 generations of squares: the baby, the mama, the granny and the great granny. If you don't have the book go here right this very second :)
I have had so much fun sewing cute things from this book over the past few years. I made a table topper with the mama size blocks, but the whole point of this blog tour is to use the blocks in unexpected ways and give them a little twist!
I had some scraps of adorable Christmas fabric that I didn't want to waste and I decided to make three cute baby blocks and make a sew together bag. I used 1 1/2" squares to start, and my blocks ended up at an adorable 3" (finished). Little Joys fabric can be found here.
Great Granny Squared is full of really fun projects, and thanks to this blog tour, you now have inspiration to make so many more things! Lori's directions are so complete and fool proof, and really are beginner friendly!!
I'm in the company of three of my most favorite sewing friends today! Please go visit Tina of Emily Ann's Kloset, Trish of Notes of Sincerity and Renee of Sewn with Grace.
You can also head here to find out how the Lori, Kimberly and the girls at Fat Quarter Shop made a really fun twist on the block!
