The Grannies are Multiplying

I finished 12 more granny squares bringing my grand total to 42. I only have 14 more to make and then I can start sashing these together. I guess I better order some grey sashing fabric since that is the overall favorite. I have had so much fun scanning these into my computer and playing with the layout. You can really get a good feel for how the finished quilt will look.
I am getting a bit bored with making the squares. I think it is because I am so close to being finished with them, I am ready for the next step. But, no two squares are alike, so that is really fun.


Now I need to get up to the sewing room and get working on my Stitch Tease strip...I have a deadline to make and as the bee mama, I need to set a good example.
Thanks for stopping by,

Love your little grey grannies! I can see why they would get a little tedious...too much of a good thing! Very pretty though! Now, get stripping!

They're looking fantastic! I'm really excited to start a project that is quite similar. You're making me nervous mentioning boredom, though...
