Granny Squares Quilt: Finished!

I finally finished the Granny Squares quilt for my friend! I used the Blue Elephant Stitches tutorial.

My husband helped me get pictures of it 🙂 The backing was from the huge stash of fabric I got from my mom last year. I still have a ton of this fabric! I machine bound the quilt in white. I really like the idea of using the same color binding as the background.

My friend loves cupcakes so I used a cupcake print for it 🙂 I used variegated thread for the quilting. I quilted around the granny squares and then around the outside border.

She was married in July but I only finished it yesterday 🙁 Better late than never I suppose! Isn’t finishing quilts inspiring! I kind of want to make another one now. If only I had the time 🙁

  1. I love your work!! I agree with your choice for binding. It really keeps your focus on the main stage–those beautiful pink blocks! Thanks for sharing and inspiring. Saw you at Made By Me party!
