November Block of the Month

The Great Granny Square block is our choice for November.  The tutorial can be found here at Bee in My Bonnet.  Don't be concerned with the tutorial's length; it is just very detailed.  The block is not difficult to piece.

As with our previous BOMs, the blocks should be 12.5" square, unfinished.  You can use any of your modern fabrics for the squares, but make sure the center square is a red and the background strips are white.  Leave a comment if you have any questions.  Have fun!
