Countdown to Christmas: Christmas with Granny

Holidays are all about spending time with loved ones. The aptly named Granny Square block is perfect for a Christmas quilt, bringing to mind lots of great holiday memories with a favorite grandparent.

This quilt square finishes at 6″ x 6″.


Fabric A: [1] 1 7/8” square {Handmade by Bonnie & Camille}

Fabric B: [4] 1 7/8” squares {Bread ‘N Butter by American Jane}

Fabric C: [8] 1 7/8” squares {Love You! by Sandy Gervais}

Background fabric: [2] 3 ½” squares and [2] 2 ¼” squares {Bella white 9900-98}

Cut the 3 ½” squares of background fabric diagonally twice, making four triangles from each square. Cut the 2 ¼” squares diagonally once, making two triangles from each square. These will be the corner units.

The background pieces are cut this way so that there are no bias edges on the outside of the quilt block. They are cut a bit oversized and will be trimmed later.

Sew the pieces together in rows.

Trim the dog ears.

Press seams towards fabrics A and C.

Sew the rows together.

Square the block up to 6 1/2″, lining up the outer tips of Fabric C on the 1/4″ marks.

This quilt block finishes at 6″ x 6″.

I hope your holidays are filled with wonderful times with family and friends!
