I needed a new project...

I've been wanting to experiment with some big Churn Dash blocks since I started dreaming up the extra scrappy pinwheels. When I put it together, this will be a 12" block. I'm thinking that nine of them with some sashing will make a good baby quilt.



I do not remember buying this blue sheet. I know I bought one when the thrift store was closing, but I'd have sworn it was a totally different color. Usually when fabric and yarn changes color while I'm not looking, it's changing away from the color I want. This blue is going to be a perfect background, and I've got a print for the backing that I think will go well with it...assuming it's wide enough. I really should go measure that stuff!

I am like you always shopping outlets for sheets. I have, unfortunatel packed some away in storage that I could use now, oh, so will need to go thrifting soon.
