Come Sew Along!

Woo hoo ! Today is the first day of the Great Granny Sew Along! Are your Alphabitties  at the ready? Do you have your fabric picked out!  As usual Fat Quarter Shop is hosting another super fun sew along with  Lori Holt to celebrate her cute new book Great Granny Squared!

Not long ago I got out my Alphabitties, my Great Granny Squared book , printed out the special pdf companion and got ready to SEW ALONG.  You can get started by downloading the cutting instructions for this special sew along yarn filled basket block by clicking  right here.

Great Granny Sew Along
Adorable right?  I love the balls of yarn just waiting to be crocheted. Lori has such a cute way with things don't you think? 

Great Granny Sew Along
Now be sure and leave a comment today, the Fat Quarter Shop has kindly provided me with a copy of Great Granny Squared for one of my blog readers! They're pretty great right?  Let me know if you're making Lori's or Kimberly's version of the sew along sampler. Then be sure and head over to the Jolly Jabber today, to Lori's and also to Erin's and Sherri's!  Once you get your block sewn, add it to the Great Granny Sew Along Flickr Group for a chance to win more prizes!
Now! I think I've covered all the bases here.  Time for me to get back to the extra block basket I cute out Thursday and get busy!  Have a great week everybody! xo

I think I'll make Kimberly's version I like the layout a bit more.
I love your basket it's really cute! And since I don't crotch I pretend that the balls of yarn are actually easter eggs;-)

Your basket is too cute! I might shamefully copy it, if that's ok! And I might miniaturize the pattern again. I already have Lori's book so I'm ready to sew!

I make a lot of quilts for Project Linus, so I think Kimberly's layout will work better for that. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop and PamKittyMorning for another great quilt-along!

Love your basket! I can't resist polka them :) I am making Lori's version to hang in my sewing space but I'm seriously considering making Kimberly's also as an Easter basket and replace the balls of yarn and hook that are under the basket with Happy Easter.

I think I like Kimberly's better, but I like rectangle quilts as a general rule, and it sort of looks like a doorway.
