Around the Block | Round Robin Quilt Along Block 5

Share the love!

The block today for the Round Robin is a Granny Squared Quilt Block by Elizabeth of Simple Simple and Company.

I have always been a fan of the granny square in crochet.  I occasionally pick up the hooks– and this is a great go to crochet pattern.

With quilt blocks, this can become one of your go-to quilt blocks.  Keep the center the same color for a consistancy –or use scrap fabric for a no rhyme or reason kind of block.

Either way this is a great one for using smaller fabric scraps.
