And Now For A Dash of Color


 
 
 
 
 
I made several of these large Churn Dash Variation blocks that finish at 13.5 inches in the last week or so. 

I made two blocks last December after I found a pattern from McCall's quilting May/June 2010 designed by Julia LaBaune and Tammy Silvers.  I often make a couple of blocks as the urge strikes so I don't forget that I really want to make something.   I needed some color this past week so I picked it up again to work on.  I'm using my 30s reproduction fabrics.  I'm not following the pattern instructions because I have my own method of making HSTs. I guess the picture was the inspiration.  

Well, anyhow I want to move this forward to a quilt top this month so I'm declaring this my May OMG (One Monthly Goal). I think I have 21 blocks and am working toward 36 blocks in a 6 x 6 layout plus I think I will add a border of gingham for one big quilt.

Nice large blocks; they get finished quickly! I'm making 4" churn dash blocks on and off at the moment and they're taking forever, S-L-O-W-L-Y.

Gorgeous, gorgeous fabrics! I had my churn dash kick last week. I LOVE churn dashes. I also do not follow instructions. Make it your own. Have a fabulous day!

Ooh, I like these blocks, Cathy! Such a large sized block you won’t need too many to make a quilt.

The reproduction fabrics re perfect for your Churn Dash blocks and they're a good size to work with.

Your color choices remind me of native costume color combinations from northern Europe. Bright, happy, and playful! Looking forward to your completion of this happy quilt!
