My new thing is the churn dash block. I’d never made one until this morning. I saw a few examples in the Charmed Prints Quilt Along Flickr group and thought I’d give it a try.
The four blocks included in the quilt are star, pinwheel, diamond, and Greek cross, but a few people pointed out that switching the corner hsts will make churn dash blocks, so I decided to give it a try. I started working on the layout of all the blocks and can’t wait to get the sashing sewn on.
Ronnie had a trying new things first today, too. Her big sisters love to paint, but since she’s not even a year old yet, she’s never gotten to participate—except meddling in their paints and making a grand mess of the kitchen floor and windows! So I sat her up in her highchair with some fingerpaints today and she LOVED it!
By the end there was more paint on her clothes and high chair than on paper, but it was worth it for all the smiles (plus, less paint all over the kitchen)!
I’m linking up this post to Trying New Things Thursday on Happy Quilting.
