121 blocks = done

I finished off  the last blocks for my blue block blanket last night.

It’s not going to be as big as I’d originally intended, but after more than a year of on/off Summer Garden Granny Squaring, I’ve reached the point where if I don’t finish then it’ll get parked and be a long term WIP. I did feel kinda sad working on the last ones, but better that than getting fed up and leaving them at the back of a cupboard somewhere.

So it’s on to blocking. Anna had a great suggestion of using a foam camping mat…

There are 46 blocks on there at the moment. I could have done more but I ran out of pins (and that’s after buying a pack of 200 specially for this!) Hopefully the blocking will be done by next weekend at which point I’ll lay them out and start sewing them together!

    Good for you! Can’t wait to see it finished.

    The really great things about granny squares is that you can always add more onto it later if you decided the finished one is just not big enough but I absolutely sure you’re going to love it. 🙂
