The Great Granny Along

Have you seen the Great Granny Along blocks that are out there in quilt land?  Terry of Terry's Treasures has been making them and I think I am in love.  I decided to make one block, just to see how difficult they are and how much of my time they would take up.  They are not difficult and they take very little time and best of all, they use up scraps.  But I couldn't stop at just one block.  I had to make another.
I am having to use different background fabrics for each block because I do not have enough of any one fabric.  But I like the scrappy look, so I will continue.  Oh, did I say 'continue'?  I guess that means there are more of these fabulous blocks in my future.

Your first two blocks look great! I'm having so much fun using up my scraps on these! I have three more blocks almost done! :0)

I think the differnt background fabrics will make it very interesting. I like this block but not the bias edges. I would be tempted to cut triangles for the edge on grain.
