Check!

My Churn Dash t019op is done……CHECK..ok, so it’s only 16 X 20, but it’s done and so cute. My piecing abilities are a bit in question, but nothing that a little practice can’t correct!! I just love it and now I think I’m on to something…SMALL QUILTS….. I can actually get them done. 018

Two of my 020next options……both small so why not do both!

Here’s a real finish..pieced by a friend041, quilted by a friend and I put the binding on. Perfect on my table and chocked full of friendship!!

We are still on baby watch or waiting I should say. Little Polka Dot is coming for a play day tomorrow and we can’t wait. Wednesday we have a visit with our girl and some sight seeing in her neck of the woods, then Thursday and Friday a visit from some long time quilty friends.

Feels so good to be back to getting something accomplished…now to keep the ball rolling. Happy week everyone!

I love your churn dash! And you are back to quilting, that must be great. Just keep going, like for an hour a day or even just half an hour a day...

Your mini-dash is lovely. I really like the fabrics you used.

Sounds like you have a really good week coming up.

Love that churn dash! And that teeny little basket pattern too!

Small quilts are so much faster to make. I would have guessed that your quilt was larger than 16 by 20. It is hard to guess when just looking at a photo. I think you are on a roll with little quilts. I like what you are making!

Love your churn dash. Have fun making little quilts. They make me a little nervous. All those little pieces.

Love it! I too am into doing smaller projects that I can, one, finish, and two, quilt myself on my own machine. Love to do wall hangings and table toppers and runners. Love it!

Hi again Cheryl. Thank your for your sweet words on my post about my daughter getting married and finding her prince charming. It does a mother's heart good to know that happiness is in her life and that they have so much to look forward to. Us Mama's always want that for our kids, and we sure never stop that "mothering" instinct do we? I looked for you at Road. Even thought you might be working the booth of the shop where you used to work.

Waiting patiently for news about baby #2.

Never met a churn dash I didn't like. So so cute and tiny - fun.
