I was so excited and surprised to discover I’d been a finalist in Crazy Old Ladies’ Block Contest and yesterday I found out that I’d come in third! I won a Hall of Fame 10 square fabric pack, can’t wait to play with it!

I managed to finish another hand stitched Granny Square block last night. Once again, the little squares finish up at 1″ and I used Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

Yesterday Amanda from All Kinds of Wonderful asked in the comments if I were really going to make a patchwork skirt and the answer is YES! I think with the right fabrics and the right length, it can be funky and fun. I may use 5″ granny squares from charm packs, all the block seams will have to be serged or pinked and maybe even top stitched to avoid ravelling in the wash. I have a few ideas floating around and warm weather is on it’s way so I’m going to live in these skirts for the entire summer which means I need to make a maxi as well.

Three more days till the weekend, W00t!

  1. I can’t wait to see it 🙂 I have added some appliqued hexagons to an apron I made before and now I’m thinking that would look just as lovely on a skirt.

    ……..and congratulations on the block contest. Love the red and aqua combination in this one.
