A CHURN DASH FLIMSY

This past January it was my turn to pick the block I wanted for the do.good stitches group. I asked my bee mates for churn dash blocks. They could make skinny or regular--whatever they wanted.



I received a lovely assortment of scrappy blocks.......


.........and put it together like this


Digging through my stash, I found this big piece of Fandango for the back  : )


Lovely.  Now to get it quilted up


I scooped this huge bundle of fat quarters yesterday for a song.  Happy birthday to me!

Happy birthday, Carla!
Did you set a colour scheme for your lovely churn dash blocks or was it a happy accident that they all work so well together?
