      Thank you Vickie, I had backed it in minky at the request of my DH, but it seems my daughter has now claimed this one for herself 😉

    What a lovely finish! The piecing in the churn dash blocks looks to be really tiny!

    Your most favourite finish? So it should be. While we all love a quick and easy project from time to time, nothing beats the sense of accomplishment from making something that takes time and thought and skill, such as this. Lovely.

      Thx Carla! I loved making this and there was a huge sigh of relief when it came out of the washer still intact 😉
