Blueberry Park Granny Square

Yay! I finished with a day to spare…what am I talking about?

My niece bought a new house and the housewarming party is this weekend. Of course I decided to make them a quilt and I pulled my most favorite fabric to make it with – Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis. I only had a layer cake (42 – 10″ squares) so I started planning a few weeks ago what design I would use. I just love the big bold prints so I didn’t want to cut them up into little pieces…hence I made a granny square block using the 10″ squares!

The lighting is really bad in this picture and colors are not true but you get the idea of the design:

And here’s a picture after all the color and border blocks were sewn together. The lighting is still bad but the colors are a little more true

I’ve trimmed and added 3 borders here

And here’s the finished quilt today…I used big free motion daisies all over the quilt…I just LOVE how it turned out!!! It measures just shy of 66″ square

I made DH hold it up outside for me so I could get some decent pictures in natural light – not sure how successful it was :-s

I’m flying to Maryland tomorrow for the housewarming (which happens to fall on her birthday as well!) – it should be a great party!!! 😀

  1. Oh my goodness…it’s absolutely lovely. What a great idea, doing a giant Granny Square with a layer cake! I’ll be adding this to my “Must Quilt” list. Thank you so much for pointing me in this direction!

  2. It’s wonderful! I’ve really been into big block quilts lately. Your colors are fantastic. You have me thinking about doing something similar with a charm pack for a wall hanging.
