More than a Granny 2 ebook coming soon!

Hi folks!

Almost 2 years ago now, I released my first ebook, More than a Granny.  You most likely know, my favourite thing to do is design new squares and rather than let them languish, it’s time to release another lot of 20 x 6″ new patterns for you to play with in a new ebook called More than a Granny 2!

The ebook will be available very soon for preorder from Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.  If you don’t have an ereader, don’t worry as it will be available in PDF format in the shop after its released 7 August 2016.

The exciting news is all 20 patterns not only have the written pattern,  but also the charts to go along with them!  Yay!  I do love a chart to help me make sure I’m doing the right thing in the right place.


Each Monday for the next few weeks, I’ll introduce you to a few of the new fun patterns. Let’s go!

First up is Vanes, so named for the similarity to old windmill vanes formed in the centre. It’d look great as a blanket and it’s not too tricky at all.

Next up is Mariella, named after a Kate Nash song I was listening to when I first designed it.  It’s not hard and I love the lacy look, but it’s still quite a solid block.

Circulo is up next.  One of my favourite things to do is turn a circle into a square.  I love how this pattern looks as good in one colour as many.  There really are so many colour changing options for Circulo.  Fun times!

The last pattern I’d like to introduce you to this week is Radius.  This really is an easy one to do and so effective.  I think this is one of my favourite blocks from the 20 in the ebook.

So there you have it!  I hope you see something you like! I’ll see you next Monday with introductions to another 4 new patterns!

If you can’t wait, the first More than a Granny ebook is still available at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, Barnes and Noble and even in the blog shop in PDF format.  As always, it’s available in both UK & US terms.
