You might remember that I have been busy making little granny squares for Sharon's Possum Magic quilt.
There were two main influences for choosing little (3.25" finished) grannies as the second border.
First, I was so impressed by the work that Sharon put into her centre. There are some very small hexies in the middle of the Dresden and I wanted to reflect those in my border ... so some tiny piecing was in order!
Second, Jo did such an awesome job on the first border - so much work, so many fabrics - I wanted to celebrate her border by giving it a little room (and bask in it's glory) ... white space was in order.
I didn't put any old white fabric in there though ... I made sure that the fabric had a bit of pizazz ... Michael Miller Mirror Ball Dot anyone? ... my grannies know how to party!
You can see here the method that I used to make these grannies. They are so fun to make!
I'm bringing up the rear of the group again by finally finishing my border on Sharon's centre.
Technically I'm a day late ... but ... as I pass this onto Carla next (and she's currently on holiday for another week) ... I'm going with "Hooray I finished a week early!"
