Once upon there was a girl called Denyse. She had a giant granny. She was so huge she couldn't fit into her house any more, so Denyse built her a house out of fabric and quilts, so it would stretch and bend and be more soft and comfy for her giant granny to live in.
Ok, that's made up. It might not be made up, but I'm pretty sure it is. This is Denyse's giant Granny, a granny square quilt block but made with 5" strips so the block end up around 19.5". I used flea market fancy and some of the Joann's (and Spotlight in Aus) Denyse fabrics, which are so good. I think most of these ones were from the first collection, Picnics and Fairgrounds (? Is that right? It was a while ago and I'm not certain that was what it was called).
I had planned to make this super big but then I got bored, so it's a nice small twin-ish size instead, about 60" x 80", which is still a pretty good size, and probably more sensible because it wouldn't go on my bed so where the heck was I thinking of using a massive king size quilt anyway?
That background is timeless treasures sketch in white and black. Obviously. Obsessed much? Remember UK peeps - Alice at Backstitch has a heap of sketch in stock now (and also Fat Quarter Shop and Pink Castle Fabrics for my overseas peeps). I don't think I need to bang on about how good it is any more, do I? I did that just the other day.
It was good light today, not too bright, not too dark so I took a few pics...

Off it goes to Long Arm Chris. Bye Bye Denyse's Giant Granny.
