The pieces for that second little 'Churn Dash in a Churn Dash' had got pushed to the back of my cutting table with all the different heart fabrics that I've kept pulling out elbowing it out of the way.
However I just fancied doing a little piecing instead - quite unlike me - so over the past couple of days I've sat down in short bursts and kept popping away at those little 1" squares - oh the joys of having a permanent sewing area - bliss!!!
Here we are, top completed - the whole top measures 12.5" square and it shows the design up much more clearly than the purple and yellow one I tried before. I still find the whole concept of the darker churn dash design within a design quite magical - simple brain, easily pleased :o)
I think I'll quilt it and bind it to make it into a wall hanging for the lounge - the colour combinations will fit in a treat
I'm glad I've got this to the completed top stage - I may not get that much time to stitch this weekend - yet again rugby calls, but only for another few weeks now - and because of this I shan't be spending my birthday this Sunday doing my choice of activities - but never mind, there's no rugby next weekend and it's also a bank holiday on Monday 5th May so I guess we'll postpone the birthday girl's choice of activity until the long weekend
Now............... back to those hearts..................
