Modern Granny Quilt Top Finished!
I was able to finish up my Modern Granny Quilt Top last night, and was able to take a picture after dinner (or do you say supper? LOL). I LOVE the longer days we're getting into.
As I've mentioned before, I made the granny squares from a charm square swap we had at our local quilt store. There were only 40 squares total, so I added a few other fabrics from my stash to barely finish the 10 granny squares. After deciding I wanted a bigger quilt, I dug out more stash fabric and bought the rest of the black. The local store no longer had the original black (a Moda Grunge), but had something else pretty close... a Moda marble black I believe.
Also, as mentioned, the yellow was supposed to be at a totally different angle, but a major cutting error forced me to modify a bit. It's not perfect, but hey, it's DONE! I already have the fabric for the back selected (more stash fabric), and hope to get that sewn up very soon!
