Notice I put the finish for September 2012, it shouldn't be a problem as long as the border fabrics hurry and get here from Hancock's of Paducah.

|Three more ready to be basted and quilted. I think that the pink and yellow and pink and red borders unpurpled them a bit.|

PS I need another project like I need another hole in my head, but I sure have been eying the Granny Square Quilt Along. I even ordered 4 yards of white Moda muslin over the weekend while Hancock's of Paducah was having their free shipping sale. If you haven't noticed them, here are some links here and here. Of course, I ordered mustard fabric a while back for bowties to take part in Bonnie's Quilt Along, and I haven't started those yet, but I still intend to.
And yet, a couple more methods on the Granny Squares. This is for my benefit so I can find them later. This and This
And This too.
I recently got an accuquilt go and a 2 1/2" strip cutter. I have been looking at you tube and the jelly roll races, so I thought something along those lines would be a good place to start experimenting. I went to my long quarters and used most of them cutting 32 sets of 3 strips each and then decided that the size they were making wasn't what I wanted so I cut the long long strip into 40" sections and started sewing them as they had been cut. The first picture I messed up a bit, and the second I think I got all sewed in sequence. Then I started thinking that they were using 40 strips not 32 and so if I sewed them as they did that maybe the size would be about what I wanted anyway.
