Granny Square block

Granny Square block, originally uploaded by rkkilmer.

Don't you love it when you wake up and know it's going to be a creative sewing day? That's how I felt this morning. I was enjoying my first cup of coffee for the day and perusing my e-mail, when I came across a post from a blog I follow regularly. It's called "Stitched In Color". This blog is chocked full of fun stuff and is always a great source of inspiration for me.
Rachel, the gal whose blog it is, is currently hosting a "Scrap Attack". I had yet to jump in to the fray of this project, but then this morning she posted a tutorial that changed all of
that. Its a quilt block made up of 2.5" squares of scraps. However, the way that the they are put together is meant to resemble a Crocheted Granny Square. It was only 7:30 am, but I quickly got the babies up and dressed so that I could head downstairs and at least cut out one
block to start. This is what I have accomplished so far this morning. I have a quilt top to take in to be quilted and I am meant to be making a few receiving blankets for my daughters preschool teacher who leaves on maternity leave tomorrow. But, I am pretty sure I will be sucked into making more Granny Square blocks instead. Yup, it's gonna be one of those days :)
You can find the tutorial here :

Happy Wednesday,
