The second quilt block in the 2015 quilt block of the month series is the granny square block. I think this block is way more interesting than a 9-patch… and just as easy to make.
You can make a quilt with only the granny square blocks. I’ve included several inspirational photos of granny square quilts to help you decide on colors… and to see how a quilt would look with just the granny square quilt block.
You can also combine the starflower block with the granny square block to make an interesting quilt. I’ll share a drawing of this idea in the inspiration section of this post.
The instructions are for a 12.5″ quilt block. All the quilt blocks in this series will be 12.5″ square. The finished quilt block will be 12″ plus 1/4″ seam allowances.
You can make just one granny square block… or several… it’s up to you! Each block in this series will complement the previous blocks… and I’ll show you examples of how to combine them.
Twelve 12.5″ quilt blocks will make a quilt measuring approximately 36″-48″ wide X 48″-60″ long… depending on how you assemble your quilt blocks. If you want a larger quilt, increase the number of quilt blocks or the size of your quilt blocks.
