Churn Dash and Final Block!

I have a few things to show off you.

The FINAL block of my
'snow days' quilt is done!
I cannot believe I've done 
14 blocks in eleven months!
Now the real fun begins.
I have many fabric blocks to make...
churn dashes, stars, & pinwheels.
I bought the fabric last year and
have been waiting (& waiting) to work with it.

I hand-pieced my very first block!
Yes, I did...
I pieced it by hand!
And, even better?
I rather enjoyed doing it!
This is a churn dash block...
the first block of the Hand Piecing Quiltalong
I'm doing with Erin.

I will finish sewing the binding
on the baby girl quilt tonight.
That'll give me something else to show off you!

Have a good evening.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."Jeremiah 29:11

It looks great and wow you did it!! I can't wait. I really like your block. I can't wait to see the baby girl quilt.

Hooray for you...loved watching all the blocks as you finished them. This is going to be one spectacular quilt!

All of the blocks you have done are so beautiful, can't wait to see how you put it all to gather. I love the churn dash, have a few of them in my books, so will have to do some someday.

Hurray! Big grin with that last stitch I am sure! Kind like a "I can't believe I accomplished all that" kinda grin! :-) Congrats on the hand piecing! Is it slower, easier, more accurate than machine piecing?
