One Large Liberated Churn Dash Block

>> Monday, September 20, 2010

Saturday Night

I made a mistake sewing my giant churn dash block together.
I must have flipped over the foundation piece on the way to the sewing machine.
It took me maybe an hour to decide that I couldn't live with it as a design "opportunity" -
I knew I would know it wasn't what I had planned!

Sunday Night

Much better.
I still have the three strips of blocks to join together.
You might be able to see, at the bottom of the middle one, the extra 1 inch strip I have to add. This block will measure 30 1/2 inches unfinished.
My middle panel is short by 1/2 inch.
I will make it larger then sew the strips together.

The Plan
{Kind of - the measurements are wrong in the photo}

This is the first of 5 large Churn Dash blocks for the queen size quilt I'm making with my Sew Modern Bee Blocks. My month is November when I'll be asking my Bee friends to each make me a 15 1/2 inch unfinished liberated churn dash block. The plan is to set them in groups of 4 between the large churn dashes to create a quilt that measures 90 x 90. I plan to quilt each 30 inch square separately then join them together.

Wish me luck!

Great block. It is hard to imagine how big it is!

Looking good! I wouldn't have been able to live with an obvious "mistake" in my carrying out a plan either, though no one else might have noticed! This will be a vibrant and smile-inducing quilt when it is all together. Do you provide the fabrics for your Bee?

Interesting project... I like it! 8-)

Definitely different, but I like it! That sure is a mega block (at least in my world)!
