Baby! Oh! Baby! Granny Squares

The granny square phenomena that's been sweeping the quilting blog interweb even reached into my little part of the world.

I made this baby quilt with the Old Red Barn Group that I started my quilting journey with three years ago and we used this  tutorial from Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches.  The best part of this quilt is it was a true scrap buster and I actually used all the scraps I have accumulated from my past projects.  Memories flooded back as I cut, sewed and reflected on the changes in my skills (better  ... I hope) and the knowledge I've gained from my many, many learning experiences (as I euphemistically call my mistakes).  I've got a long way to go before I feel even remotely accomplished but I have come a long from where I started.
