I have seen some bad granny squares in my day. I have even created some really bad granny squares that I would like to burn to this day, but recently I have learned that granny squares can be absolutely beautiful!
Here are just some of the granny squares that have inspired me to pick up my hook and try again!
And yes I know that one of them is a circle, but its a very perfect circle I just had to throw it in!

Simple changes in color, stitch, and pattern can transform a granny square to a modern beautiful work of art!
I have been very inspired by the work above and vowed to make my cousin (who is now expecting a baby girl) a gorgeous granny square baby blanket.
I will make sure to post my progress (as soon as there is some to show).
Anybody else weary of the granny square?
Hopefully this will help boost some confidence!
