Granny Square Blocks

Granny Square blocks
In addition to the initial Granny Square block (top middle) I managed to make four more blocks out of the scrap bin.

I've been cutting and prepping fabric to make more of these addictive blocks, so the scrap bin should provide enough fabric to make blocks for another Quilt of Valor.

For non-quilters, the blocks look shaggy, but they will be trimmed when I am ready to sew them together. The trimmed blocks will have a lot of bias edges that are prone to stretching when handled; thus, to reduce the stretching, the blocks will be trimmed later.
