Sorbet Churn Dash Update #1 from Rose and Dhalia

Quilty people really are the best kind of people, we already kind of knew this, but I've never put out a call for blocks or help before and I really am staggered by the number of people who are offering blocks.
First up I received these from Jo.
Aren't they gorgeous, perfect colours and I love that background.
And today I received these blocks from Carol.
So so lovely!
The only thing with receiving all of these blocks, is it's making me want fabric that I don't have!!! I must resist!
Here they are with the ...

Candy Dash - pattern available in Make Modern from On the Windy Side

Last year I was excited to learn that a group of enterprising Aussie crafters were launching their own online quilting magazine.  Make Modern includes patterns, articles, interviews and lots of interesting tidbits.  I don't buy a lot of quilting magazines, mainly because I think they aren't great value for money (so much advertising!), but Make Modern is really packed with content and well worth the very reasonable purchase price ($6.95).

I'm now very pleased to be able to let you know that I have a pattern in the newly released Issue Four of Make Modern.

Churn Dash | a bright and cheery quilt from Never Just Jennifer

Every year my girlfriends from school (affectionately nicknamed: The Cupcake Club) get together and have our annual Friendsgiving gathering.  We eat lots of food, paint our nails, apply face masks, adventure about, drink lots of wine, and do a Yankee Swap or Secret Santa.

This year I brought this fun quilt for our Yankee Swap.  When I started it I had dreams of making it massively large and keeping it for myself.  But I found it sitting in a WIP pile after several years and that changed.  Rather than making another 20 blocks or so, I decided to finish it ...

Shoo Fly-Churn Dash Quilt Blocks from Pinevalley Quilts

Shoo Fly-Churn Dash Quilt Blocks

This morning I have woken up excited about starting a new quilt ! Well it’s actually finishing an older design that I started last year. I had the applique block done and put it aside to make other quilts with more important deadlines. I got a bit off track with my original idea and needed to let it settle in my brain while I came up an idea for the rest of the quilt.

Last night ( in my sleep ) I had the best idea of how to finish this quilt. Haha Don’t the best ...

Bubble Gum Colors in a Baby Quilt from Magpie Quilts

Once in a while, I end up with a block or two or four left over from another project. Last year I made this wonderful full-size churn dash quilt from a lovely set of pastel fabrics. Blogged here.

Churn Dash Cutting Guide from Ants to Sugar

There have been a couple of churn dash blocks around here lately. First was this wonderful Pixie Churn baby quilt made by Ella at Throw a Wrench in the Works (pattern by Rachel at Stitched in Color).


Then, Jamie asked for a Churn Dash block during November in Stash Bee.

For Christmas, I made my niece a doll quilt.

After Christmas, I had a thought: wouldn’t it be cute to make my niece a bed quilt to match her doll quilt? I’d like to make something like the Pixie Churn but twin-size instead of the 34″ baby quilt ...
