Quilting fun for family and friends!

Finish it up Friday

I have finished my churn dash baby quilt. Just love Bungle Jungle by Tim & Beck. I thought I saw a layer cake on sale for 50% off. Can't find it now, which is sort of okay, as it would definitely not go with my goal of no-low spend on fabric I do not need!

Just love the churn dash. I was unsure about the corners on the individual blocks but once it was all together I really quite like it. Saw the idea for the corners in Quilting Quickly Fall 2013 on a quilt pattern by Jenny Doan.

The crossword material is a big hit with everyone.

Love the look of the back, however, it was a bit of a fiddle to try and get the lines to match the quilting. Next time I may have to do diagonals so it is not noticeable. You will note I did not pick out the quilting and try again!

The quilt was gifted yesterday at a baby shower. My office mate now knows why I was quizzing her on the colours of her nursery. Blue and green, a perfect match. I am very happy with this quilt and will be making another for my grand baby! Due in November! They call
the baby a boy and I keep referring to her! We will see.

  1. Beautiful finish on this colourful churn dash! Love the backing and binding. How big is that - about 30" x 40"? I bet your friend was thrilled to have this for her new baby. Congrats on your upcoming grandmotherhood!

  2. What a great twist on the churn dash. Those squares the corners make give the whole thing a new dimension.

  3. This is very sweet. I just love churn dash blocks

  4. Too cute! Churn dash is such a great classic
