I have some old Chunky Churn Dashes in 30s reproductions from a swap. I was thinking I would finish a quilt of these this quarter. I think I have maybe 50 or so of these six inch blocks and originally I was thinking I would set them on point. But that doesn't give me a very big quilt and I was not thinking of making any more blocks. I was also thinking I don't really like to add borders.
I was thinking I had a bunch of nine patches in 30s repros but then remembered I had combined most of them with some apple blocks when I made my Ten Apples Up on Top quilt for the hope chest.
Well, what do the Chunky Churns look like combined with nine patches? They look like they kind of get lost in the shuffle...might as well just have a nine patch quilt.
Ok, well what if I combine the CCDs with nine patches with white corners?
Maybe...but I don't have very many of these nine patches and what I do have are thrown in with other six inch 30s repro blocks for a 30s mish-mash quilt.
I have a whole bunch of framed four patches in 30s reproductions but they are eight inch blocks which means I would have to frame the CCDs in order to bring them up to the same size.
Well, maybe...so what else do I have?
Well, really I have no other 30s repro blocks to play with but...
...if I wanted to combine with some calicos instead of staying with strictly 30s I do have a lot of calico and muslin spools.
