Hello, and Happy Saturday! I’ll be back next week with more Quilt Market Recap, but today I wanted to let you know about a fantastic quilt along coming up! I’m super excited to have been asked by my friend Jane to participate in this quilt along featuring her beautiful nested churn dash block. I followed along on Instagram as she put it together, wanting to make my own version from the very beginning! All of the information about the quilt-a-long from Jane is included below.
Who is ready for a quilt-a-long of the Nested Churn Dash? Starting 1st June 2014, I will be taking you through the steps to make a 24″ x 24″ nested churn dash block.
Joining me will be 10 of my favourite quilters who will be making their blocks into a mini quilt.
For the more adventurous, you can continue on and using the 24″ x 24″ finished block you can make a pillow or mini quilt or make a quilt, ranging in size from 28″ x 80″ (1 x 3 block bed runner), 54″ x 54″ (2 x 2 block setting), 80″ x 80″ (3 x 3 block setting) and 106″ x 106″ (4 x 4 block setting). I will provide instructions for each setting.
