Isn’t there a saying, “…the best laid plans of mice and men…often go astray”. Well I can certainly tell you that is a true statement. In the Spring of 2013, I made great plans to have this quilt completed in a year. It is now almost the Summer of 2014 and I am only a little over a third of the way finished. The worst part about this is that I have only posted 19 of my finished blocks.
So this time there will be no grand statements for when the blocks will be completed! I will TRY to post two per week.
This was one of the first blocks that I completed. I did not use the paper piecing for this block and I also did not take any pictures of the sewing process. This is a fairly simple block to complete. While you are making this block, you may also want to jump ahead and complete #111 Wrench. These blocks are constructed the same, it is only the color placement that changes the look of the blocks.
This is an up close picture of the center of my Churn Dash block. I still love the “Bucket List” fabric that I am using in this quilt.
Well, I guess I can mark off number 4 on this list since is just says “join a gym” and nothing about “going to the gym”.
I’m not really sure I like the name of this block, but I do like the way it turned out. The “smile more” and “have more fun” in the center block were my inspiration today. I had many things to do around the house,(one being…writing this blog) when my friend invited me to have a relaxing day at her pool. I then took one look at this block and headed out the door with my bathing suit in hand.
I did not use paper piecing for this block. The center and corner pieces are 2 1/2 ” squares and the other four pieces are half-squared triangles cut to 2 1/2″. I hope you enjoy these blocks and follow me on my new journey to complete this quilt. Happy sewing!
