Betty's Scrappy Churn Dash (Finished Feb 14th)

Lots of color here. I did continuous curves and loopy thang in the blocks. The sweet flower in the center of each block is called Vintage Flower from Legacy Quilting. The sashing is a simple alternating leaf line pattern (Small leaf_Wavy_border from Legary Quilting) that worked perfectly in this sashing. I used PermaCore Foliage Rose thread in that sashing and it blended great.

The color block borders were done using Diana Phillips Line Dancing #39 from Intelligent Quilting. I love her stuff. I put the quilting on the outside of the block for a different look. The bonus was that it made the color block POP. Both of the red/white borders were quilted with one of my favorites from Legacy Quilting called 2116_Double_Cable_Block. Betty also likes this border motif.

I want to be just like you when I grow up!! hahaha! You are so's hard enough to do the work, but you pick the greatest designs to accentuate the blocks and border.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
