Churn Dash Block
I remember that when I read through the class instructions, Kathy mentioned to be sure to pay attention to VALUE when selecting your fabric.
I remembered reading that....AFTER I laid out the completed pieces when I was getting ready to sew them together. I didn't want to remake the pieces so I switched them around to get the "Churn Dash" motif. Like Kathy told me when I posted it to the class blog...I won't ignore value again!! My block is NOT wonky. I don't know why I can't get a good pic of my blocks. They all look crooked and off in the pictures, but in reality they aren't! I probably need a design board but I have no clue on where I could put one.
The next class is the Card Game Block. I have seen it called the Card Trick Block too. I first saw this block when Cathy (Cathy's Crazy by Design) posted the one she made a while ago. I was so excited to see it is a block I am going to learn how to make! Today, I will be looking for just the right fabric to get the next one right!!
