if you're new here, allow me to introduce myself.
i'm rachel. i love all things quilty, family, and starbucks-y.
i hope you look around and stay for a while!
in case you aren't familiar with the book, lori shows us that the great granny square is (easily) made up of 4 generations of squares; the baby, the mama, the granny, and the great granny.
it's a wonderfully detailed book and is FULL of delicious eye candy.
yes, you NEED it. trust me on this, folks. ;)
if y'all haven't seen the project they whipped up, check out this YouTube video.
adorable, right?! (;
i used a "mama" block from the book and made a little lavender rice warmer.
this isn't the first rice warmer i've made, but it IS the first one i've made on the smaller size.
(this measures 6" square.)
why so small? well, because i wanted a little rice warmer to use at nighttime.
the lavender smells AMAZING, which helps me wind down.
and i don't have to give up too much space in my comfy bed by having a huge rice warmer.
