Another confession coming up ... I threw out a UFO. Yesterday I decided I should make a start on my sample swaps for the Fat Quarterly Retreat. I had already decided to make three mini quilts out of some embroidered blocks I'd started. when I opened the box, I realised there was more work to do than I had expected. None of the blocks were finished, I decided there and then to bin the blocks and instructions, put the layer cake I was using back into my stash and start making four Nested Churn Dash mini quilts.
In a day I made four of these mini blocks.
You can see just how small they are compared to my rotary cutter, then I added another row and made three into this:
Getting a little bigger, then one more row onto two of the blocks and I finished with this:
I temporarily lost one HST and ran out of one fabric so I've pieced some leftover fabric and hope that once it's quilted, it won't be so obvious. Today's job is to finish cutting out the pieces for row three and finish piecing the blocks. the pattern calls for an extra row, but these are big enough for my purpose.
This pattern is a bargain at $2 from Craftsy. You can pick up the pattern here. And if you haven't registered with Craftsy before, do consider signing up through my affiliate link button at the top right of this blog.
