I love this take on the Granny Square block! I especially like the use of just one main fabric, too. I've been a fan of the Granny Square block since it re-emerged in quilt-land. If I cave and make a quilt using this block, I think I'd definitely have to use this variation. I have a question: if you cut no triangles, how do you come up with your setting triangles? ;-)

Love these colorful clear fabrics and don't they look like party decorations on your clothes rack?

What a stellar idea to use rectangles instead of all squares and the two fabrics per block looks great. This will be such a cute, happy quilt.

I appreciate the links and your naming the fabric lines, too. Helpful!!

Thanks, as always, for sharing each day!! Do you know if this pattern is available? Love it!!

YEAHHHH! You are making Gracie Mae to ! Aren't they just the funnest blocks to make ? I love the look of your fabric in these blocks.
This is going to be just GORGEOUS !!!!!


hahaha! Great minds think alike! I have this EXACT pattern that I mocked up in EQ about 6 months ago and called it ''not your granny'' LOL. I didn't get around to making one yet though :) I was going to use a jelly roll or two :)


I love the saturated colors coming out in some of the new fabric lines. And I especially love them when they're paired with white background fabric.


Love our interpretation of the granny square block! It's great for these fabrics because although the colors are really strong the block design calms them down.


I love it!!! i made the granny square quilt a few years ago. it's basted and sitting waiting for me to quilt! i may have to make another.....

Oh I do like this variation a lot!! I made a quilt with that Fancy collection... LOVE the colors... gotta get the borders on it. Thanks for the inspiration and the links. This is going to be a beautiful quilt.

Nicole - Thank you for the shout out. I love how the blocks look in Fancy! I may have to shamelessly copy you. Don't you think that a simple block works best for bold colors or fabrics that really need to stand alone? I can't wait to see more. Donna


Love the colors! I'd like to make one too. But I need to buy that fabric first!
