Have you seen the Granny Squares patchwork blocks that are growing on a lot of blogs these days? I´m sure you have. It all started here, I think.
Isn´t it funny how sometimes two people in different parts of the world have a similar idea? I made these blocks last September, and I also had "granny squares" in my mind. But I chose a black background because I wanted to create something that would look like Roseanne´s sofa blanket.
I saw Jolene´s blog Blue Elephant Stitches only last week when I saw the granny squares on several blogs. Before that I had no idea that I wasn´t the only one sewing these blocks. :-)
(I even googled "granny squares quilt" last summer and found nothing.)
My mother has a theory that creative ideas fly through the air and can be caught by more than one person - I think she´s right.
