Granny Square Quilt Completed

Lest you think I gave up on my quilting projects, I'd better post an update on some recently completely projects. 

This first one I am really proud of. The fabric is Make Sweetwater and you can find the granny square tutorial here.  I guess this project started back in May. One flickr trade, and some DS Quilts backing fabric from Joann later and it's finally finished.

The quilt ended up using two charm packs and I was really happy that I came close to getting the scrappy look I was going for.  I hand quilted around each block in a silvery gray color while on a road trip this summer.  I also took the extra step of adding a binding flange for the first time.  If you look closely, you can see there is a sort of double binding, an interior gray (the flange) and the standard green binding on the outside.  It adds just a bit of detail to finish things off.

And now, the real reason I haven't posted in a while...

JT and Granny

The big guy is on the move!  He is absolutely obsessed with standing up and loves chasing our little Lily around the house.  (I think he likes the new quilt.)

When we're not side stepping along the side of the couch or facing off in diaper wrestling matches, we're browsing online for fabrics.  Thanks to Purl Soho and their special pre-order status, I was able to get my hands on these lovelies in July - way before all of the American shops [INSERT BIG HAPPY GRIN HERE].
