Three Sweet Projects from One Pretty Little Block!

Granny Square blocks are so charming. We’ve seen them used in quilts, wall hangings, tote bags and pillows. Emily at Auntie Em’s Crafts shows us how to make them into pretty little ornaments and coasters.

Sew up four, tie them together with a ribbon, and you have a wonderful gift. Make the coasters all the same or mix them up, using matching colors and fabrics.

Or, add a ribbon or cord for hanging and the coasters turn into darling tree ornaments.

Mini Granny Square OrnamentEmily even shows us how to turn the mini Granny Squares into pincushions. These make sweet little gifts for quilting and sewing friends.

Mini Granny Square Pin CushionsThe mini Granny Square blocks are 4 1/2″ square before being finished off. They’re a great way to use up colorful scraps.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
