Simply Small Quilt Projects



Happy Tuesday! Today is Simply Small day here at  A Quilting Life! I have a fun parade of projects from last month's pattern. First, though, I'd like to share the project for next month--a Scrappy Churn Dash Table Runner!



 I'd been wanting to make a churn dash project for quite some time...this classic block seems to be everywhere these days! The block is simple to piece, and is perfect for 2 Moda Candy packs or for using up scraps.



 I added some simple straight line quilting to my runner with lines spaced about 1" apart.


I used two Moda Candy packs of Color me Happy by V & Co. along with Moda  Bella Bleached White 97 (white) and Moda Bella 34 (aqua) which worked perfectly with this collection as a backing and a binding!


These table runners are almost as cute rolled up as they are on the table! Okay...and now for a parade of last month's Simply Small projects!


 We will start out with this beautiful Scrumptious version!


 Hildy made a beautiful version using some very spring greens!

  
Janet made this beautiful version!



 I love Jennifer's mini version!


  
And Joanna's version made with Comma is stunning!






 Susan made a fun version with Kate Spain's Daydream collection.



 Another spring version was made by Joy!


 And Pati made a beautiful red, cream, and blue version!


 Peggy used Daydream by Kate Spain!



 And Sharon made this beautiful version using Audra's Iris Garden!


 Dorothy made a runner using the block pattern.


And Wendy made this beautiful quilt!

Thanks so much to everyone for participating! If you have a quilt in today's parade I'll be emailing you the PDF for next month's pattern as a thank you! Participants for the April parade will  receive the next pattern...and so on!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Next month's Simply Small parade will be on April 10th!

They all look so pretty - how fun to see the same pattern, but in different color and fabric. The churn dash is one of my favorite blocks, so this one will be fun to play with.
