Great Granny Sew Along - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Great Granny Sew Along

Don’t you love transforming old projects into something fresh and new? Today we’re looking at Lori Holt‘s Great Granny Squared Book in a whole new way! In honor of Great Granny Squared’s one year anniversary, we decided to put a new twist on Lori’s Mama Blocks by turning it  into an applique circle block. 
If you want to know how you can sew our Great Granny Circled project, grab a copy of Great Granny Squared and watch Kimberly’s video tutorial!

We’ve also invited Lori’s quilty friends to sew along this week. Hop on over to their blogs each day to see their “twist” on Lori’s Great Granny Squared blocks!

Sew along with the Great Granny Sew Along!


Sew Along with us to make the cute Mama’s Crochet Quilt, designed by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet! Our Sew Along project uses instructions from Great Granny Squared, so you will need a book on hand to participate!

Each week, with the help of 12 bloggers, we will help you make your blocks, show plenty of photos, and give away prizes! To help you with cutting, we created some handy PDF companions which will be found below. Be sure to check back here each Monday to download the PDF.

We will be giving away a bunch of Lori Holt approved prizes throughout the sew along. To enter the weekly giveaways, post a photo of your blocks to the Great Granny Squared Flickr Page ! Winners will be announced the following Monday on the Jolly Jabber!

Order your copy of Great Granny Squared and get ready for this vintage-inspired sew along!
