Granny Squares on Fabric Tuesday

Randi has the sweetest "Little Granny" mini she's made up.
It was the inspiration for this

little quilt I whipped up over the weekend.

Jolene has the tute over on her blog.
She used 2.5" squares for her lap size quilt, but Randi's was made using only 1.5" and I knew I didn't want another largerish project.  I wanted quick, easy peasy, cute, and inspirational.

These were made using Randi's measurements and the finished blocks ended up being 5" square.
I liked the softness of her sashing, but wanted to use more of Moda's fabric line Sunkissed.
I had picked up a charm pack at a LQS last year and was saving it for just the right project.

Here's the back.  The word "hope" is very significant for me this year.  I have a lot of things I'd like to accomplish and is 2012 is the year I'm "hoping" to do just that.
