Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July to all of my US friends...and happy weekend to everyone else!

Last year at just about this time I was finishing up my patriotic Nested Churn Dash...it's one of my favorites!


 It's funny that even after making this king-sized quilt I still had plenty of scraps in the red, white and blue color way. (This quilt was made with all Minick & Simpson fabrics).



 


So a month or so ago when I was invited to participate in a scrappy log cabin swap I jumped at the chance to join in!  This time I'm using Minick & Simpson and anything else fun that coordinates!


We are making 20 1/2" blocks then cutting them in fourths--you keep one of the sections from each block and send the other three off for the swap...so fun! I absolutely can't wait to see all the fabrics I'll have in this scrappy quilt! I'll definitely be sharing  more about it as I start to put it together!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I love everything you make. Is there a pattern for the nested churn dash block? I'd love to make one.

Love your nested churn dash (it's such a fun pattern, isn't it?) and your log cabins. I think an oversized log cabin block would make a great baby quilt, too (need to remember that when I need a baby quilt next time). Have a wonderful weekend:-)

What a great idea. This should make an interesting scrappy quilt.
