WIP Wednesday

I just wanted to share what I am working on. I am bad about waiting until I finish a project to share it. So here is my Quilt for Boston quilt that I just layered and started quilting. It has lots of negative space and I am quilting in a zigzag every 3/8″. I’m not sure how long it will take to finish this, but I suspect a while. It is very different from what I usually make. I sort of made it up as I went along. Q for B

ChurnDash VariationOver the weekend I designed a paper piecing block for this churn dash variation. It is basically a churn dash block on point. I have four blocks sewn together in the picture at the right. There are some weird “house shape” pieces and piecing the regular way was very time consuming and not very accurate. I am using the freezer paper technique where you don’t sew through the paper. I like this technique much better than tearing out the paper. I am super pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?

I’m linking up with Freshly Pieced, check out the other WIP Wednesday posts and make comments please!

Got a Gainesville Modern Quilt Guild meeting tonight, more later! Lora

    1. I learned this technique from Episode #1211 of The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. Surprisingly I haven’t been able to find any tutorials on line. It is a technique where you fold the freezer paper back and stitch along the fold.

  1. I love the Churn Dash on point! The four blocks look amazing together. I found you through Freshly Pieced’s WIP Wednesday linky, and it’s such a coincidence that Gainesville is my hometown. 🙂

    1. I checked out your blog and love what you are working on. You are doing very well with paper piecing. I notice you live in Central Florida. Do you belong to any of the Modern Quilt Guilds in the area? There is one that meets in Wildwood and one in Orlando.

    1. It is a wonderful technique. I learned this technique from Episode 1211 with Ann Petersen on The Quilt Show. I hate tearing out the paper, what a waste of time. I looked for some tutorials online but haven’t found any yet.

  2. Love it, So timeless. I love the churn dash block. On point it is even more amazing. The quilt for boston looks amazing too
