Scrappy Granny Squares Quilt Tutorial

quiltylove_EmilyDennis-9184-4 A granny square quilt has been on my wish list for some time now so when I snagged a jelly roll of Bonnie and Camille’s Daysail fabric I knew it would make for a fun version.   I opted for a scrappy version where multiple fabrics are used in each block.

This block is pretty simple to make and a great way to use up a jelly roll.   This quilt used about 3/4 of a jelly roll.

Each block contains:
»  12 2.5″ white squares
»  13 assorted 2.5″  squares [ 1 center, 4 middle color, 8 outer color ]

Number of Blocks: 30
Quilt Dimensions:  61″ x 68″

Step 1
Lay out each block as shown below.

Step 2
Sew together rows using 1/4″ seam allowance.   Press seams open or each row in the opposite direction.
Step 3
Line up seams and sew rows together.   The top block is centered and sewn as shown below.  Press seams open or away from center.
Your block should look like this once rows are sewn and pressed.

Step 4
Trim into 9″  square block leaving 3/8″ from each point.
Step 5
Layout blocks.  Add 2.5″ white sashing.    Sew together quilt top.   Add 4.5″ white borders.

Nothing better than a freshly crinkled quilt out of the dryer!   :)

I machine quilted the granny squares with my tried and true zig zag.   I should really branch out more on quilting designs ;)
