How about some red, day two . . . .

Over the weekend I decided to take a break from 3 Barns and make a few mini 3 inch churn dash blocks.

This is what was waiting on me when I walked into my sewing room  yesterday morning.


And this is what I had at the end of the day, 22 finished blocks.



I went from 6 blocks to twenty-two blocks.  I couldn't wait to see how they looked in a group.


This shot gives you a better feel for their size,  I may need quite a few more to fill that design wall.


They are a nice and easy diversion.

I got a note from someone who received their Thelma bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop in yesterday's mail.  I've yet to receive mine and it's driving me crazy.  I'm planning on making a Valentines table topper, some mini churn dash blocks AND a Carrie's Little Bites Chip from my bundle, but until I get a bundle I'm not making anything!

I mailed Betty's box of fat quarters yesterday, it weighed 11pounds, even! Thank goodness USPS doesn't charge by the pound!

I'll be back tomorrow with another red post!

  3. Lovely churn dashes !
    Your FQ shipping made me think that international readers will never more win giveaway here or elsewhere. Do you think we pay $25 for a flat rate envelope with 6yards of fabrics...bouuuuuuuuh ! :((

  5. I should be getting my package from bloggers choice tomorrow and boy,I have been tracking and it is making lots of stops. I am excited to get and this will start another new project (hopefully not another UFO) Love your little blocks and you must have been a busy little bee yesterday. Makes me feel slooooow! Only did last row on a quilt and start side borders.

  11. How cute! I just finished a mini churn dash in repro fabrics, not all red, but cute still the same. Since it's so small, I thought I'd hand quilt it. I tried several times yesterday but could not get a pic to come up of your bundle. Will try again today. I know it's beautiful!!

  15. For these new blocks - thinking of a wall hanging, quilt or using them in some kind of accent/border on another project? BTW... I sent a quick email to Kimberly at FQS to let her know your picture doesn't come up when you browse on the Bloggers Choice bundle. I'm sure they will straighten that out soon! GO TEAM RED!

  16. Those little red and whites are wonderful. And as for filling that design wall, just like any yummy snack ... one bite at a time. I look forward to seeing this project grow.

  19. Churn Dash and Ohio Star are my favorite blocks. These are so cute and so small! You've done good progress today. Are you doing a full size quilt or are you going mini on us ?
