After the center was pieced on my Granny Squares top, I decided to piece the borders with the million or so leftover squares. I KNOW this is the type of project that I will procrastinate on—calculating how many units for length, making inner coping borders, figuring out the corners—so I’m making it my OMG, One Monthly Goal. I like this quilt too much to set it aside, but much of the remaining piecing will be mindless sewing and I won’t worry about the “how to quilt it” bridge until I get there later in the month.
Be sure to check out other inspiring design wall projects at Patchwork Times and see what others are hoping to accomplish with their OMGs at Red Letter Quilts.
Beautiful blocks, love the color palette you’ve chosen. Good luck with your OMG for August.
Love granny square blocks. This is on my to-do list…someday. The bright green/turquoise background really makes your blocks pop!!!

I love the colors in this quilt! You did such a wonderful job.
Oh, that turquoise is wonderful! Great quilt.
Yummy colors! Overcutting for a quilt can be a hazard 🙂
Quilter Kathy says
That is challenging for sure! Good idea to make it part of OMG!
Love the colors. I always forget to do that type of border, but love them.
Your background fabric really make the blocks “pop”.
I like the pieced border. It really adds a lot to the quilt.
Mindless piecing is good, especially late in the day.
The border looks quite complicated to me, but it does really make the quilt shine.
I’m glad you picked this one. I wouldn’t ever have thought to use that background, but it looks great! I like your squares border.
Your blocks are beautiful and their colors really sparkle against the aqua background. Did you use Kona or some other brand of fabric? Do you know what color name it was?
This is exactly the kind of thing I tend to put off too, but once you get to piecing it all together time will fly! It is a perfect summer project and I am so happy you are sharing with One Monthly Goal!
