Granny Square Quilt
This little quilt is a trip down memory land for me! I posted my first tutorial for this block on January 23, 2012! Over four years ago. It's still by far the most viewed page on my blog.
I so clearly remember the first two blocks I put together for my original quilt. I was wanting to make a block that resemble a crocheted granny square. I started with one 2.5" square in the middle. Went around it with two more colors, added a white border, and then Voila! It looked a bit like a granny square!
It was of course, a traditional quilt block already. Often called the Album block, although I've seen it under many other names as well. All I did was pull it out of the past and throw it into the online quilt blogging community. It had all the right ingredients to be a popular quilt pattern, considering it's simple vintage appeal, the way it looks so good in scrappy colors, it is simply a pleasing shape.
So four years later, it's still a quilt design that I find appealing! It truly is a classic, which stands to reason, since it has been around for a lot longer than four years. (Here' s where it would be nice if I had done some research on this block and could tell you about it, but I didn't:)
