A Fortunate Granny Finish!

Fortunate Granny is finally finished! I begun these blocks last August, the top in October, and finally got around to quilting this month.

I incorporated the extra 2.5″ squares left over from making the blocks into the back.

I’m really proud of the quilting on this one. This is the first time I’ve quilted a quilt entirely in a pattern other than FMQ stipple, and the flowers came out really nicely. The quilt is bound with more of the backing fabric.

The color difference between the whites (Bella for the blocks, Kona for the sashing) isn’t as noticeable in person; it doesn’t bother me much in any case.

I feel like I’ve been on Beast Mode with finishing quilts lately. Let’s see if the momentum carries further! Fortunate Granny is my May goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes and one of my Q2 Finish Along goals. Hooray!

  1. Good job on getting it quilted! That’s always the hardest part for me. I kinda like the 2-toned white. Adds to the look of the blocks – like a crocheted granny’s square.

  2. great finish, well done! the quilt is beautiful, I love granny squares. I also love the back – that could be a modern quilt in itself!

  3. This is very pretty! I love the way you used your leftovers on the back. It always makes me feel so accomplished to do that!
