Churning and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, friends. I got into my studio this week for the first time since the loss of my dog, and it felt good to sew something, however small.  By far, the Churn, Churn Churn pattern is the most popular class I teach from my book, Scrappy Improv Quilting, and I've been wanting to sew another class sample for awhile now.  

I decided to make this one in a cool color way with purple, blue, and teal, and I think it is so striking against the solid black background.  Here is the original quilt from the book-

I like the single color gradient effect, but it's always nice to show a different option for quilters in my classes.  I'm heading to Charlotte, NC next week to teach this one, and then I'm teaching it again in Tulsa, OK in April.  So, it seemed like the perfect time to get this new sample "churned" out. I'm working to get it quilted and finished before I leave at the crack of dawn on Wednesday (I literally have to be at the airport at 4:30am).  

Even though I'll be in North Carolina at the time of posting next week, don't worry!  NTT is still on.  I'll have the post all ready to go before leaving.  Now, let's get to the highlights from last week.  This EPP finish is from Turid at Den syende himmel.  WOW!  This quilt was ten years in the making!

Quilting Gail shared her method for making a diagonal quilt back, and you know I'm all about pieced quilt backs!

Check out this cute quilt from Maggie at Making a Lather-

And finally, I am in LOVE with scrappy finish from Something Rosemade-

  2. I love the nested churn dash blocks.
    Someone sent me a link to your blog and when I tried to open it is says insecure site. It seems you are still using HTTP instead of the secure HTTPS. It's an easy fix in Blogger but I'm not sure how you can fix it.

  3. Your churn dash quilts are wonderful!


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
