churn, churn, churn

Another day, another WIP! It's been fun to work on so many different projects this week. Thanks for following along with my mini series!
Today I pulled out my scrappy churn dash blocks. I've been thinking about how I will set them all together, but I still haven't made a final decision. I HAVE decided that I would rather make the larger blocks than a ton of the smaller ones. Oddly enough, my accuracy seems to be better on the smaller rather than the larger blocks. (How backwards is that???)
I joined 4 small blocks together to see how they look, but I'm not sure that I will be doing too many (if any?) more of those. There is a LOT of bulk in the back of this block. It is pretty cute, though....
It has been delightful to come across tiny little details like this little owl peeking out from the patchwork. So fun! It's sure to bring a smile to your face whenever you see it!
I have a tutorial for the larger blocks here and a tutorial for the smaller blocks here, if you care to make some of your own.
One thing I DO know for sure....I'm not in danger of running out of scraps ANY time soon. Ha!

Shoot! Cute! Love this, everything you do is so cute. Did you notice the secondary design?
I made 170 of the little 4 patches and said ok, enough, this will be a small baby quilt! and it is and it is cute!
I don't know how you do it all!?!?!?!

Oh they are such sweet little blocks! Is that a linen mix background. I'm a little bit obsessed with using linen in my quilts. . .

They are wonderful! I made just as many of each before I packed up for my annual migration. I love them. I’m hoping, by the end of the summer, to have enough for a quilt of significant size. I’ll just make a few whenever the spirit strikes, and take it from there. I like how you seem to be sticking with red for your corner hst's. Looks great.

I LOVE these. I have a number of scraps myself, and this is just such a great way to use them up. I love how bright they are.

Love these mini-posts! Love the scraps because I have a hard time letting go of my scraps. Thanks for inspiring me.

It was love at first sight when I saw your first post of these tiny churn dash blocks. I made four to piece together for a tiny wall hanging, and I also think they'd make cute quilt labels. One trick with blocks this small: press your seams open to get a very flat block.

Awwwww, those itty bitty ones are so cute!
