How not to…

…write a tutorial. I finally sat down to write the tutorial for my Modern Churn Dash quilt and totally messed up because I was trying to finish the sewing before I had to pick up Little Miss Bossy-Boots from Kindergarten. However, I really like the mess I made and am happy to show it to you.


This is what the churn dash looks like when you sew some of the pieces the wrong way. I did it with the first row and didn’t realise it until I finished sewing together the second row. I had the choice to unpick but decided to continue instead.

Positive Doughnut

I’m not sure what this block is called but I named it the ‘positive doughnut’ and I love it so much that I’m thinking of turning it into a quilt rather than a cushion as planned. It means I’ll have to go and buy some more of the background fabric, a shimmery little Michael Miller number.

The tutorial for the churn dash will be posted this week with lots of illustrations drawn in TouchDraw…

  1. Haha, they look good the alternate way. I think I prefer them like that! It looks similar to Greek Cross block but I don’t know if it is exactly like that.
