Churn Dash from Pinkadot Quilts


Isn't this quilt wonderful!?!? Today I ran into my local quilt shop, The Quilt Block to pick up a pattern. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make it and bought the pattern and all the fabrics so my wish can come true.
It looks even better in person (don't all quilts?). So if you are interested call the Quilt Block at 610-363-0404. Even if you live far away I think they would be happy to send it to you. Tell them I sent you!

Schon wieder Ende des Monats und ich musste mich echt sputen, den Churn Dash nach Nadra´s Anleitung auf ihrem Blog ellis & higgs für unseren 6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke Quilt Along auf Facebook zu nähen. Passend zur Butterfass-Geschichte habe ich den gelben Tula Pink Stoff + Biene in die Mitte gesetzt - na ja, war wohl doch eher Zufall....

Make the Whimsical Shoofly Quilt with this Video Tutorial!

With a little creativity and a touch of courage, quilting can be a real “choose-your-own-adventure” experience. What happens if I rotate half my blocks?

Making strings while the sun shines from Making A Lather


I decided to treadle while watching Ghost Whisperer last night on netflix. I made 10 more string blocks. I'm not a fan of string piecing, so I leave it to my treadle and that makes it better for me. I really like string pieced quilts though.

But, it sure doesn't look like I am using these up anytime soon.
I am making 10 inch blocks using Missouri star foundation papers. I like them, I can add them to my orders to make the shipping seem more reasonable when I buy the deal of the day. But phone book ...

Progress here and there from Making A Lather

The good news: all 41 blocks for my chunky churn dash quilt are done. Bad news: They are very scrappy and I can't see what will go with them in the alternate hourglass blocks. Bonnie Hunter uses a navy. I will have to ponder and play to decide. But I can feel that I am ready to send them to ufo paradise for a vacation. We'll see. This is a free pattern here.

This really uses a lot of 1 1/2 inch strips and 2 1/2 inch squares from the scrap bins. Super easy, so that ...
