August Block Swap sent

After some dutiful unpicking on the Handbag Quilt on Monday night, I decided to "reward" myself by making Sue's Churn Dash block for the block swap.

It didn't turn out as pretty as I would have liked since my original choice of background fabric was brown (and really pretty!) BUT since Sue has been getting quite a few brown blocks lately i thought a blue one was in order!

It's not absolutely square BUT each side does measure up at 12.5" and my points match which is (in my book) more important since it's easy to fiddle with the seam allowances when joining blocks together if one is a fraction too big or small.


  1. Thanks! I still wish it was more "pretty" though!

  2. Its lovely Alex, I will be starting to play with all my blocks now to assemble a quilt.
