Churn Dash Quilt

For my current project, I’m participating in the Churn Dash Quilt-Along, hosted by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter. This has been a fun project – the blocks come together easily and Amy has some time saving tips on cutting and sewing.  Of course I’m behind, but it’s okay because the instructions will stay posted so I can still participate.

I probably should’ve paid closer attention to what I was doing on this block. This is what happens when I get singing too loudly:

Oops!  Too much singing!

Oops! Too much singing!

I had to laugh when I started to press the seam. I seriously considered (for about 30 nano-seconds) leaving this block the way it was just to mess with people when they looked at the finished quilt.  I quickly decided the only person I’d be messing with would be me because I wouldn’t be able to stand that it was different, so I got out my trusty seam ripper and went to work.  Sigh…….

Here’s the design wall so far. I only have 16 blocks so need to make about 15 more.  I really want this quilt to be bigger than just a wall hanging or throw size, so I’ll be making more blocks.  I’ll keep you updated on my progress.  Meanwhile, what are you working on?

    Looks marvelous! I love singing when I sew and it
    Does screw things up sometimes for me as well.
    I’m still working on an apron quilt I started forever ago
    A lot if appliqués, I’m really getting into that lately.
    Can’t wait to see all your blocks on the design wall!
    Happy sewing sister❤️

  3. So glad I am not the only one who does that. Well done on keeping a sense of humour about it!

      Hi Catherine! Thanks for stopping by. You’re right, humor keeps us going and makes quilting so much more fun!

    Great job on the blocks! I would have laughed too if that would have happened to me. For me, it’s not singing… it’s trying to have a phone conversation while pinning pieces together. More often than not, that 15 minute phone call costs me 20 minutes of ripping. Lol. Can’t wait to see it all put together 🙂

      Thanks Jess…..I’ve done the phone thing too, and always end up with a sore neck from tilting my head to hold the phone and end up with crooked seams too. Ahhh, but we’re having fun!! 🙂
