February block...another churn dash????

Isn't it sewing weather!!!!  I don't know what the weather is like where you are but if it's anything like Northern Ireland you'll be glad to huddle in your cosy house and get some sewing done. That's what many of you did last month, sewing together Churn Dash blocks then whizzing them off to us.  THANK YOU!!!  It was a fun block to make and a great tutorial. Thanks for letting us use it Sarah.

We were so inspired by Sarah's Ruby quilt (photograph above) which is on her blog here, that we thought we would try the same layout, white background fabric with a patterned Churn Dash, which was January's block, beside the reverse, a patterned background fabric with a white Churn Dash.  Hence this month's block...a patterned background with a white Churn Dash,which is in the photograph below.  Phew, what a mouthful.  I hope it's clear!!!

The pattern is the same as last month's and you'll find it here. The white churn dash pops out against the strong background colour and once again we're not stipulating a specific colour. 

We would like the blocks to be with us by the Friday, 4th of March, please, and as always we thank you in advance for your continued support.  Our email address is here, should you need it, and we meet here monthly. Actually we meet tomorrow, whoop whoop, so I'll have some updates for you at the beginning of the week.

Happy Sewing...the days are getting longer 


  1. Have a great day tomorrow! Have a couple of reversed ones for you. The positive and negative versions of the block work so beautifully together. You will have a great quilt.

  2. Great idea! Looking forward to sewing with you all again tomorrow! Jxo
