Here are the first two blocks for a quilt I am calling ‘Ya Ya’. ‘Ya Ya’ is Greek for grandmother.

It is my spin on the classic granny square quilt block. Check Teaginny Designs here for a traditional but colorful example of the granny square block.

Wanting to avoid having all of those bias edges on the outside of the block, I decided to sew the block together differently. The ‘Ya Ya’ block has the same look…only different.

Come back and see how the quilt turns out.
