Glenda Wilder: Granny's Secret Workshop




“Granny’s Secret” is the ultimately flexible quilt pattern!

Using your choice of precut strips and yardage, OR precut 10" squares and yardage, OR nothing but yardage and/or scraps, this design from Glenda Wilder is another fast, fun to finish pattern.

Featuring a single traditional block that has been redesigned to accommodate precuts, it can be made in your choice of finished sizes. Although there are some bias cuts/seams, the workshop features a technique to minimize sewing on bias edges, making it suitable for confident beginners and beyond.
