Gettin' My Grannies On

I started this little runner back in March.  I've had it done for a while now and wanted to take some pics before it goes off to it's new home.
I'm donating it (along with a few other things) to a boutique that is raising money for the Children's Justice Center in Provo, Utah next month.


I decided to do some big stitch quilting around each block in black perle cotton.  I don't do much hand quilting but enjoyed doing it on this very small project.  I like what it adds to this simple design.


I gotta a couple of hot pads that I need to finish up to go along with it.  I think I'll use Lori's tutorial to finish those.  Perfect timing - since she just posted a Great Granny Pot Holder's tutorial yesterday!  Hers are so cute!!!

Don't cha just love granny squares?  They're so fun to make.
Have you joined the GREAT GRANNY ALONG that Lori and Jodi are hosting?  I just drool over their Granny Squares quilts (you should click on over and check them out).  Maybe one day I'll take the time to make one of my own... cause I'm totally coveting right now.
