this is the third hop that I've been on with Madame Samm and this one is being coordinated by the lovely Jane who was my swap mama in the wonky houses swap over at flickr so I feel like we're family now :) so thanks for another fun hop !
for this hop we're making either 10.5 or 12.5 inch blocks and of course they're red, white, and blue - there have been some wonderful blocks on show over the past 13 days and there's still a couple of days to go so if you haven't been following along you should check them out :) the only thing about being at the end of the hop is seeing all of the blocks that I could have done but didn't think about !!
anyway ... my blocks are 10.5 inch and I changed my mind quite a few times about what I wanted to do!
so I decided to do a small quilt just with a churn dash block and cut up the red and blue polka dot then thought it might just be a bit too much with just this block so I had to come up with some other ideas with the already cut fabric !
so I've ended up with four blocks - a pinwheel, a sawtooth star, and two churn dash blocks - I'm going to make a little wallhanging with the pinwheel, sawtooth, and a churn dash and I think the other churn dash will become a cushion!
I'm looking forward to doing some first time free motion quilting on the wall hanging - maybe some pebbles or loops to soften those lines :)
thanks for dropping by on this Bastille Day - I know the French will be celebrating with red, white, and blue today too !
and don't forget to take a peak at the other hoppers joining in today :)
