In May Chooky invited us to join her in a Churn Dash SAL . We were to make 8 blocks a month over four months making 32 blocks for a nice size quilt put on point....
Then at the beginning of this month I sewed up a storm and made 14 more blocks...
As our Patch group was going to our annual retreat in the Big Smoke thought if I make 2 more blocks I could make the flimsy ...
Sorry Chooky for going ahead of the others but it was good to have lots of room to lay out the blocks and have the ladies to help.....
The local craft shop is having a mark down sale @ $10 a mtr and I was lucky to find the perfect fabric with just 3.6 mtrs left, enough to half and sew together for the right backing....
Now to get it sandwiched to take to the quilter....
Look forward to seeing what all are up to in the SAL
Thanks Chooky for organising us..
Must away and bring in the washing,
Stay safe and happy stitching,
Hugs Maria ❤

For not really knowing where the churn dash blocks would take you--you have done a great job in getting them sewn and into a top--way to go, girl!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt top Maria and a great score finding the backing. I'm looking forward to seeing all of these come together.ReplyDelete
