Granny Square Blocks - the beginning of a new quilt

Do you love (crocheted) Granny Squares
I do! I even have a GS UFO! Take a look here. Looking at the shelf next to where I'm sitting; they are still there, in a plastic bag! 

To make a granny square quilt has been on my bucket list for quite some time, but other items were given priority. While I was working on other items, the granny square quilt didn't slip my mind. After I made my first batik quilt, there were no questions; it had to be a batik granny square quilt! 

I've chosen a combination of green and brown batiks, to make a man cave quilt. These are all from my stash. I don't have many greens, as you can see, but it has to work with what I have! :) The light one is a very light mint green, it looks almost white. 

One of the blocks I've made. I cut 3 inch squares and trim the blocks to 11 inch square. 

After I took this photo last night, I've made 3 more. I still haven't decided on size, sashing or not, or how to place the blocks, it all depends on the fabric I have. I'm NOT going to buy more (she says! lol) except backing, don't have anything that is big enough whatever size it will be. 

Happy quilting!

Så flink du er :-) Og nydelig farger. Disse blokkene er morsomme å lage, jeg har sydd noen varianter av de jeg også. Tror det blir 3 tepper til slutt
