My apologies to anyone that says “that’s not a churn dash block!”. You’re right. My mom always had a lot of issues with her stomach and would say her stomach was churning. That word just brings back memories of my mom not feeling well so I switched the color layout but kept the pattern.
This block was quick and easy! I decided to throw in a fabric in there that isn’t from the same line as the others to see if I could stretch the colors in the overall quilt a bit. I’m still undecided if I actually like the choice I made but when it’s just one block in the quilt, it’s close enough that it blends in so I’m keeping it this way.
I had someone ask me the other day if I could make them a simple half square quilt. Sure! So I headed to the LQS over the weekend and picked up the fabric needed thinking I could probably whip this out before the backing shows up tomorrow for the hunters star quilt.
And then….I received an invitation to a wedding yesterday. I thought we would get one based on our friendship, but as the day approached and we didn’t, I thought they migh have trimmed their list down and we didn’t make the cut (hey, it happens – weddings are expensive!). Last year I had been told verbally by the father that we were invited to a wedding celebration and spent a lot of time and money to buy a personalized gift and then…well we weren’t invited, so I decided I wasn’t making a quilt this time until I was really sure.
Can I get a quilt made that’s fit for a wedding gift in just a few weeks? I need to make a decision, and probably today so that I have time to finish it if I am. And I might need to simplify the design I had. Then again, I might just pick up something from their gift registry but I hate to do that. Stay tuned….
