Although I am enjoying this quilt beyond measure, there are two things that I would have changed had I knew how great the response to my request would be. One, I would have started this back in March when I had 6 weeks of free sewing time to work on it, and two, I would have asked for 6” or 8” blocks instead of 10” so I wouldn’t need a forklift to hang this puppy up! The one thing about a potholder quilt is that it is often much heavier than one that is conventionally made. There are nearly 3 extra yards in this because of the individual bindings so you can see how it can pack on the pounds.
Here is the next batch:
We’ve had a Churn Dash explosion! It is hard to beat a Churn Dash so I am happy to see 3 of them in this community quilt. I know Barb (Fun with Barb) did a block swap a while ago so I suspect she inspired many of these. Thanks Barb!
Cecile Denis, Vendome, France. (Patchwork Inspirations) If you look up “sweet” in the dictionary, you will see a picture of Cecile’s face! She is always so upbeat and positive. I love participating in her sew-a-long each Spring. And, despite my excessive “stash”, I have never seen the green print in this adorable little Churn Dash block (and matching label!). I added a border that looked like antique French fabric to bring it up to 10”. Thanks Cecile!
Dorothy (Dotti) Hossler, Stepney, Connecticut. This sweet little Churn Dash was too big for the 5” blocks so I picked up on the purple in the floral print she used and added it as a border. I’ve had that purple print for so long I think this qualifies as vintage. Thanks Dotti! (Oops! I just noticed that I added and “e” to your name when I made your label. I’ll change it tonight!)
Wendy Tuma, Northfield, Minnesota. (Pieceful Wendy) I added a bit of sashing to this adorable Churn Dash to bring it up to 10”. Wendy’s label is so true, “Quilty Friends are the Best!”. I think her note paper is encouraging as well. We all need to remember that we’ve “goat” this! We will survive. Thanks Wendy!
LuAnn Krug, Indianapolis, Indiana. (LuAnn’s Loose Threads) LuAnn says: “I’ve honestly lost my quilting mojo through all this so I started doing some counted cross stitch. I have been home since March 11 and am amazed what you can get via curbside pickup.” Yes, LuAnn, I think our world will change in many ways. It will be interesting to see which “brick and mortar” stores can stay afloat when all is over. I am happy that these two blocks came my way. I use the one with the label for the back so yours is truly a two sided block. Thanks LuAnn!
Pat Dudek, (aka Quilting Babcia), Scio, New York. (Amity Quilter). Who doesn’t love a basket block? I am pleased to see a few coming my way and all of them are different. I love this one. I’m sorry I had to cut the bottom of just a bit to fit the 10” parameter, but it does not detract from its beauty. Thanks Pat!
Karrin Hurd, Roseville, California. (Karrin's Crazy World) I think anyone who has quilted for a while will recognize 3 of these little blocks as being part of a “Dear Jane” quilt. Karrin added the uneven 9-patch to make it a square. I love the applied one that she didn’t even finish before she decided to do it over. Well, it works for me. I used a "Dear Jane" repro fabric on the back. Thanks Karrin!
Beth French, Bowdoin, Maine. Beth said: This basket block was used for Jan Patek quilt-a-long that Attic Heirlooms did a few years ago. I added the kitty.” Beth is one of those fun people that quilters just want to be around. I think you can tell that by her whimsical little kitty in this gorgeous basket. It was an oversize block and I was so sorry to have to cut off the bottom of the basket in order to save the handle. I made sure to keep that kitty intact. Thanks Beth!
Deborah Wheeler, Olds, Alberta, Canada. Uneven 9-patch (aka Puss in the Corner) is such a great block. Deborah made this one even better by putting in on point. I added the little bit of red to bring it up to 10”. Deborah’s message is spot on. Be strong, be joyful and be safe! Thanks Deborah!
Save room for more, the next course is coming soon!

This really is going to be a remarkable quilt. Interesting fact about the weight of a potholder style quilt. You need to write a book!ReplyDelete

One after the other after the other! Just amazing!ReplyDelete
What a fun collection! I know you will have great memories whenever you use this quilt.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Wendy!I don't mind my basket being cut off; it looks like kitty has shifted the basket, doesn't it? I'm so happy to be included in what is going to be a fabulous quilt. Quite the recipe you have here!ReplyDelete
And each is a delicious contribution to the potluck!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, this is such fun! It's like a no-calorie potluck picnic (at least no calorie for us; not sure I can say the same for your quilt - haha)! Fun to see my block in the mix! Thanks! Love the cat in the basket!ReplyDelete
It is so fun to see what is being served up in this potluck. :)ReplyDelete
