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!


  1. Great way to make the quilt bigger!!!!

  2. I love what you did with the quilt! I might have to try something similar with my blocks if that is okay!

  3. It's awesome! Love the yellow. It's so modern! :)

  4. Very cool! And yay for using stash!

  5. Hi, Becky. Neat quilt! The strips make it distinctive and modern. A very elegant design. Also liked your mother's day cards--really cute.
