Amish Looking Churn Dash Block Swap

 Hello folks!  I can't tell you in words how happy I am to report that my 84 blocks for the block swap on Saturday are done!!!  And, it's not even a minute to midnight!!  Ha ha!!  It was so much sewing! 8 of the 9 mini-blocks which makes up the churn dash are pieced.  My rotary cutter blades wants to retire and my iron is begging for a break too.
 My machine is fine though although it string-pieced miles of fabric for me.  Thank you faithful friend.
 Here are five blocks waiting to be pieced into rows.
 My finished six color groups of 14 blocks each.  They are all packaged and ready to go.  My darling daughter helped me pack them.   I will of course show you the wonderful blocks I will be getting tomorrow.  Until then, have a great day.


  1. I am so glad my blocks are finished too! I ended up with 100 blocks!

    BTW, I didn't know South Africans could ramble....thought that was a Texan thing!

  2. This is my favourite block, but having go make sooo many...
