Another Flimsy!

Another flimsy finished.  Yikes!!!

Not a half an hour ago I sewed the last stitch on the fall table cloth that I told you about in my last post.  McCall's Quilting offered a FREE ebook PDF download and one of the patterns is called Scrappy Dash, similar to the one I just finished.

My favorite block is the churn dash.  I don't know why I just can't leave well enough alone but I decided to add sashing strips and cornerstones to my version and opted out of the 2" border that frames the churn dash blocks.  *sigh*  More work but more to my liking.  

My version finished at 51" x 51" which is a perfect size for our kitchen table.  It doesn't look square but it is.  It's just the angle from which I took the photo. 

I made this using the fabrics from my first fabric collections, A Vintage Autumn and Vintage Blacks.  



The colors are rich and luscious and I can't wait to have this gracing our kitchen table come the fall.  Both versions of the original pattern are definitely fat quarter friendly and if you'd like to purchase a fat quarter bundle of my fabrics, just click on the link to my Etsy shop HERE.

Click on the link HERE for the McCall's FREE patterns.  Hopefully it'll work. I had to join their site before being able to open the document so don't be surprised if you're asked to as well.

Enjoy!

I think I need a vacation!

Happy stitching!

I like your version better than the one in the book! Your fabrics are beautiful. I may have to make one for my kitchen table. Thank you!

The link to McCall's does work- thank you. I also love the Churn Dash block. Is it also called Monkey Wrench, or is that another block? Your quilt is so pretty.
