Hello and welcome to my blog, as part of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Blogtour. If this is the first time you have been to my blog, or you are a repeat visitor, I invite you to make a coffee and have a browse. I am excited to be part of Quiltmakers Vol 5 magazine, and thank them for inviting me along.
This is Desert Dash, block 489 on page 68.
I have always been a fan of the churndash block, and then when I saw this amazing orange print it had to be a feature in something. The name comes from the colour and the block.
Below are four blocks made, joined together.
And placed on point gives another perspective,
This is another colour combination, using only two lights, 2 mediums and one dark,
And on point,
And finally, a blue version, and in this one used only four fabrics.
I had in mind to create a repeat block, giving a secondary design when joinged together, so the size of the finished piece is only limited to your time and fabric. All you would need is a plain border and some basic quilting.
If you leave a comment, you go into the draw to win some great prizes, including a copy of 100 Blocks magazine, have a look at some other blogs www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/ and for another visitor who leaves a comment, they will receive a selection of Country Matters patterns.
