New Take on the Churn Dash Block.

I have had a break from writing this little Blog. 
As you may know, if you live in England, opportunities have to be taken when the sun shines.

On the few wet days we have had, I have however been doing a little sewing.
I found this tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company
Its a new slant on the Churn dash Block, which is one of my favourite blocks to make.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67Gkpvl6oB4&sns=em

I do not often make quilts using the same fabric as the pattern suggests, but this one looked so fresh that I went with it..:0)

Block no. 1 made, and so simple that the quilt top was done in no time.

Have since pinned it into a quilt sandwich ready for quilting, but as yet its been too nice weatherwise to stay indoors to quilt it...

My quilt Buddy on the Just sew site has sent me two lovely mug rugs all the way from Arizona, 
they are great fun and I am sure they will cheer me up at coffee time in the winter. Thank you Amber..

This lovely apron was the only other sewing I have done. The pattern was bought from my favourite quilt shop Sew & So's of Bungay Designed by Janet Clare and is called the Artisan Apron.
I need to add some embroidery to it and that will be finished..

I love the way this apron wraps all-around you, very useful for me as I am such a messy pup in the kitchen..
On that note...

Stay safe and keep stitching.............................Doti...
