Sometimes you just have to try something you have seen online...you know how it is, you see the video and that's it.. a new project has to be started NOW!
I have been resisting the urge to try the Missouri Star Quilt's Disappearing Churn Dash for the past week, but when a donation of bright fabrics came my way for Project Linus I could resist no more. Lynda, I hope you have some sunglasses at the ready when this quilt comes your way. :o)
I wanted to make best use of the fabric, so I cut my squares 16" to start and followed to tutorial through until I had a giant pinwheel block. I then squared it up to 21", which happens to be a lovely number to divide in 3. With the block cut in thirds and the units all ready I rearranged them to make this giant version which will measure roughly 19" finished.
With 4 of them together and a border, it will be a good size for a child. A word of caution with this technique you have LOTS of bias edges!! I starched my fabric heavily before I cut it out to be sure that nothing moved as I stitched my block together. I wouldn't try this as a beginner as you really do need a light hand with all those stretchy sides.
Until next time...♥
