Holiday Applique Granny Squares

Holiday Squares Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

These squares all have the same base square with different appliques on them. That way you can make the square itself any time of the year using what ever colors you like. In the future I plan to make a valentine, St. Patrick's Day, Easter and Halloween appliques.
