Churn Dash SAL?????

Edit SAL closed

Are you up for a Sew-a-long????
After discussions on zoom on the weekend I have been churning a few more thoughts.......
I'm sure there could be 5 of us Jeanette, Lou, Maria and Ellen joining me......Lou is definitely in.... I'm going to do a Churn Dash Sew-a-long....... Gosh hope I didn't miss someone.....
The one we are starting from will be 32 blocks....(9in blocks)
So 8 blocks each month is the guide for 4 months and then the 5th month put it together?????
That's my thoughts so far.......
If you want to make it bigger just make a few more blocks each month....... No pressure at all......
So interesting in joining in????
Keep the love of blogging alive......
Catch you later.......

Have a great time sewing, I am resisting at the moment, my sewing machines are packed away for two weeks along with everything else. Good enough reason??

Janet O. said...

Oh, I was NOT going to do any big new starts this year--just focus on UFOs. But I LOVE churn dash and I have never done a bed quilt out of these blocks--just minis and baby quilts. I am in!?! Can't believe I am caving. I was going to be so strong. But I really want a big churn dash quilt. Thanks, Chooky--I think?

ButterZ said...

I’ll have fun watching you all.

Thinking about this......

Clare said...

Is there a pattern Chooky.

Jeanette said...

Yes i'm in. :) I found some background fabric i like now i just need to decide on the rest as i've found quite a few fabrics i'd like to use. Decisions, decisions. :) Hugs, xx

Gretchen Weaver said...

Thinking . . . thinking . . . thinking, I really so shouldn't, I have so much to do this summer. Summer is always so much more busy than the rest of the year. I'll keep on thinking about this, when is the official start, June 1st?

Maria said...

Yes I’m in and have ordered background , sashing and ass civil war fabrics yesterday.
Hope they don’t take long to arrive….

Denice Barker said...

Boy if this were a winter project - winter for me - but summer is slammin' busy.I LOVE the idea.

Janice said...

Count me in, sort of…. It will be perfect for the new stash……but as we will be away for a while, I may get a bit behind. When do you plan to start and will you be forwarding the pattern?

Susan said...

I will watch for now - so tempting to be in a SAL - esp a Chooky SAL

By the way - your quilter Jackson is at Craft Alive next week! looking forward to seeing his stuff.

Joan H. said...

After your post of this quilt last week, I was so inspired I bolted to my sewing room and made two blocks, so I guess this means I'm in. This will be my first SAL. I'm so excited to be part of this. Thank you for hosting, Chooky.

Chris said...

I am considering it. I will have a look to see if I have suitable GO dies in my collection to cut pieces quickly. Goodness knows, I have enough stash fabric to make a few dozen.

ellen said...

I know I should NOT but I am in! Today I received kilos of fabric coupons and they need to be used, so mine will be scappy. Could we maybe start the middle of June - the next weeks for me are totally busy and chaotic ...

loulee said...

LOL Yes, I'm in. My fabrics should be delivered today. Looks like you have one or two more takers too.

Rose Marie said...

I'm in ... I'm in ... I'm in!!!! Already got my fabric pulled out!

Lianne makes stuff said...

I'm in I love Churn Dash blocks are we following a pattern/layout or just doing our own thing

cityquilter grace said...

i will definitely tag along with the UFO i have in progress...only a few blocks done so still many to go...hope that is ok!

sunny said...

Do I have to be a current legitimate Blogger to join in? I've been trying to think of something to do with some shirts, and this could be the perfect answer to motivate me!

Jackie said...

Not this time I am up to my nose in other sewing, knitting, quilting, and planting projects.

God bless.

Narelle said...

You've caught my attention...tell me more 😆

Annelein said...

Didn't join the zoom... but o my... love this quilt. Still telling myself first to finish a few projects... ;)

KaHolly said...

Very tempting!

Carole said...

Count me in ... love the quilt! Cheers!

Helen said...

Gosh that is so tempting but a bit over committed at the moment..... still thinking though....lol

Helen said...

Oh no can't believe I'm saying this but..... I'm in.....eeeek

Tazzie said...

Yes! I'm definitely in! I won't be able to count the blocks I'm working on at the moment because I want to get them finished. But I'm super happy to work on some more along with everyone else.
Thank you for organising this!
*hugs*

Gretchen Weaver said...

Yes, I'm in for the sew along! My quilt flimsy probably won't be finished in 5 months but hopefully by the end of this year.

Susan said...

Funny how so many people said "No I shouldn't" and then caved in - like me - like Helen - blame her!

kupton52 said...

I'm in...was late seeing the post but yes!!!....I'm in. The only thing prettier than churn-dash blocks are churn-dash blocks set on point!

:) Blessings from WV/USA

...ps...do I need to email ?

Annelein said...

I will spread the news on my blog. Is it OK I use the photo of your quilt? Hope some Dutchies will join.

Nancy said...

I think I'd like to participate, Chooky, but I have some questions before committing. Aside from making 32 churn dash blocks, are there any other expectations, as in, style of fabric, color range, size, etc.? Thanks!

cher said...

looking forward to joining in and making these blocks
Cher

Nann said...

I am in, inadvertently. I just happen to be sewing Christmas red / green churn dashes right now!

De said...

I've been convinced by Helen that it's a great idea to join in. Not blogging anymore but still keeping tabs on you

Chopin - A Passionate Quilter said...

nimble thimble stitchery-do said...

Hi Chooky,
I thought I had commented but I don't see it above. If you can squeeze me in I would love to join.
