Granny Squares Quilt Tutorial


Today we would like to share with you how to make a scrappy granny square block. The finished blocks will measure 9" before sewn into a quilt top. The finished quilt will be twin sized, about 68" x 85".


For one quilt block you will need:
13- 2.5" white squares
12- 2.5" scrap squares


Layout your squares in rows, as shown above.


Sew your squares together into rows. Press.


Square up your block to 9". There should be roughly 1/4" space between the tips of your granny squares and the edge of your block (pictured below):


Note:  Squaring these blocks is a little tricky. Be careful when you are squaring, because sewing can be difficult. Little notches can equal holes, and we wouldn't want that :)
 

Make 80 blocks total. Layout your blocks in 10 rows of 8 blocks each. Sew. Then run outside and do a happy dance :)
