Mid October

This is my pile of fifteen double churn dash blocks made with scrappy reds and blues. It is an exchange in our guild this year. Every other month we will have a different block with specific colors to make. They will be swapped out and we'll get a variety of blocks back. I spent almost three days at the last retreat making these!

My Marcus Brothers Friends and Companions Mystery blocks are now a top! I was surprised that nine little 8" blocks became a 60 1/2" square quilt! This was a wonderful sew along.

The latest "homework" for QCU next week. When Moda University ended, our shop started its own school of higher learning. Quilted Cottage University meets once a month with different 'professors' giving a presentation each meeting. We are currently working on a mystery quilt. This is the current block.

And because she looks so cute, here's a pic of Annie.

                       Off to catch up on my Austen Family Album blocks.

I like the idea that you are exchanging blocks. So many guilds have a block a month where you make a block and someone wins them all. You may never end up with winning any of the blocks.

Love your churn dashes. They would be hard to give up. Annie's picture made me smile.

LOVE those double Churn Dash blocks!! Do you mind sharing who the pattern is by? Your quilt that you finished is gorgeous. :) And that kitty is just beautiful---she's definitely the star of this post. :D
