Here is my first California Girl Granny Square finished up. I opted to use the cut triangles rather than attach a bunch of squares around and then have all that waste to be cut away. I am loving the bright colors of this Fig Tree line of fabric and, of course, she had me at the name - since I spent the majority of my life in California. I had only purchased one jelly roll and then two coordinating prints and a solid coral. Turns out that was perfect for this Granny Square Block that has been popping up all over Blogland.
Definately had to lay the block out to make sure I was putting those triangles in the correct orientation and then figured out the best way to press the seams so the seam allowances would butt together nicely. I may have to break down and get some more of this cheery fabric. I'll see how I feel once I get the rest of the blocks together.
They won't put themselves together, so back to it.
