Recently, I’ve seen many pictures and tutorial of granny square quilts. It seemed like a good project for a jelly roll so I started on of my own. Ten years ago I never would have thought I would use solid fabrics or white backgrounds in my quilts. In the past two or three years I’ve used several bolts of white or near white solid fabric.
