Churn Dash Blocks
I don't know why but these blocks--the colors of these blocks--speak of peace and comfort to me. Almost like walking back into childhood, though this was not a color from my childhood. It seems like these blocks would be a great summer quilt.
Is this a color range you like? It is one that has always appealed to me. When I'm at a fabric store or even a thrift store, these colors call to me: "Buy me, buy me!" And I so often do.
Chookyblue's Churn Dash Sew-along. It's a five-month sew-along with four months to make blocks and the last month to put the quilt together. Since I don't know how many blocks I'll need (because I don't know the layout yet) I'll make more this month and next. It always takes me a while to decide the finished layout and then to cut and sew it all together. The earlier I get the easier part done (making blocks) the longer I'll have to do the hard part.
Did I mention how much I love these blocks?
One new thing I'm doing with the fabrics for these blocks is this:
I have more to write but this post is already plenty long.
