Granny square quilt block with jelly rolls video tutorial

The granny square is a traditional easy block that can be made coordinated or scrappy.

For this tutorial I’ve used 2 1/2″ fabric strips so it’s a block perfect for jelly rolls.

Learn to make a granny square in no time!

Would you like to make a full quilt with this block?

Lori Holt has a short book on it called Great Granny squared with instructions for two quilts, one tablerunner and one pillow.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

See all the quilts in the book in a real life project
