This is block 14, Churn Dash the first block of Sarah Fielke's new BOM
We also needed to make some stars. There are 24 of these stars in the quilt but we have 10 months to make them.
I had decide to use this pink checked / striped fabric for may background and when I stitched the first star I kept getting the stripes going in the wrong directions.
I finally figured out, after cutting up lots of paper, if I cut the squares in opposite directions I could get it to come out the way I wanted.
I have since discovered from Sharon Pederson here, if I just put the right sides of the fabric together I would have gotten the same result . Now I am sure every quilter in the world already knew this, except me that is.
I chain stitched all my half square triangles and pressed them with the seams going in opposite directions before cutting them apart.
Churn Dash and twenty four stars.
Since I have so much trouble making up my mind I decided to make two versions of Happy Days.
Which do you perfer?
It’s still not too late to join in and make this fun quilt.
