This week we are making three 'granny square' blocks . . .





I've also been adding some extra embroidery details to my floral collage blocks . . .

  1. Your 'granny square' blocks look great. And more embroidery on the roses adds emphasis.

  2. Love granny squares. You have reminded me that I love the block and have never made any.... yet! Several years ago they were all over the Internet and I saved a whole collection on my Flickr account but never made any myself. Time to look at those photos again.

  3. I like the granny square blocks. Simple but very effective. I also like the idea of the embroidery on the florals. Great addition.

    1. Thanks Karen.
      Yes, adding embellishments is going to be fun!
      I haven’t any idea what I’m doing really, but I came across this IG site which looks helpful -

  4. This is going to look lovely Linda, so you, in a very subdued way. What is the yellowish background fabric you have used in your Granny Square blocks?

  5. I am really enjoying seeing this one progress! It was very tempting to join up, but I don't think my fabrics are right for this particular look.:)

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts. Due to Blogger changes, I've heard that a few people aren't able to leave comments here at all. If you find that's the case, you can always flick me an email at linda.dutch@xtra.co.nz and I'll respond from there. Happy sewing!
