Churn Dash Blocks Complete

Fortunately for me ( or perhaps unfortunately) when I find I have a list, I want to cross things off it. And after posting the other day that I should be working on this churn dash quilt, I decided to finish up the blocks. So here are 36 blocks all trimmed to size and ready to be put together. I decided against sashing, and made more blocks to make it the size I was going for. The prints all remind me of the "little mismatched"dolls and I have to say I really like it!
this is my first full size quilt, so I will be keeping an eye out for the perfect backing and I am looking into renting a long arm. I don't know anyone who has ever done it, but I'm hoping it can't be that hard? 
Fingers crossed!


  1. What lovely bright colours! I love the layout, without the sashing! I am a longarmer but I live in Switzerland so the postage alone would be prohibitive. I'm sure there are loads of longarmers in your area. Some shops will also rent out their machines for an hourly charge. I'm doing that for friends sometimes (I work out of my home) and they like being able to do it themselves only faster! :-) I'll be following to see how this progresses. Great job!


  2. very fun and colorful. It's reminding me I need to make some churn dash blocks for this month's bee.

  3. Your quilt looks lovely---the colors are so bright and cheery! :) Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it!

    Would love for you to stop by tomorrow and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
