“Eye Candy 4” is Done

I have had such a good time with this Churn Dash series of quilts I made starting last winter. I love seeing these Churn Dash blocks butted up next to each other—as the secondary patterns that form are very pleasing I think. I used sashing between blocks on the first 3 quilts.

Again, all the fabrics are from the Cotton+Steel/Ruby Star Society fabrics I had in my stash.

Here’s a close-up of the mostly ”fussy cut” block centers.

I quilted with a slightly darker grey and used the pantograph ”Bayside.” And I had enough of the clear red fabric to make this lively and perfect binding.

The back is pieced with some of the larger pieces from my Cotton+Steel/Ruby Star Society fabric stash.

The larger pieces are seriously depleted now—but there are at least two more planned quilts to be made yet—and two bins of cut 3 1/2-inch blocks to be used for, maybe, the ”Pot-Pourri” quilt series. I can easily use other fabrics from my regular stash to piece backs.
