Churn Dash Quilt #5

 I was really hoping to have a second quilt to share today but I didn't get the binding sewn on in time.  My dog felt he needed to be snuggled more than he was getting.

I still had a few more of the big blue starred squares that were sent to me.  So I made a second quilt framing the smaller churn dashes with some red fabric and alternating them with the blue squares. 
 I really like how this layout looks.

This quilt measures 60 x 70"

Suzanne sent this blue and cream backing already sewn together.  That can be so helpful as I am pulling fabric for these quilt tops.  

I do want to mention that the batting for about half of these Veteran block drive quilts was sent to me by a generous quilter.  It was amazing to see a bolt of batting arrive on my porch!

I am hoping next week I can hit these churn dash quilts hard.  I have a big stack of blocks I need to sew up and there are some more tops to quilt.

If you have blocks to still send in, I would appreciate it if you can do it soon.
It is hard to believe but the next block drive will be announced the end of this month!

What a wonderful finish! That setting is catches my eye. . .I suppose it is all the red! LOL It was a nice afternoon for a walk so I'm glad Arthur nudged you into it!

Outlining the small churn dash blocks in red was an inspired choice. This came together beautifully!

A very fun finish! The back is almost as fun as the front.
