Design Wall Monday 04/16/12

Another lonely solo block on my Design Wall today.  It's actually for the block lottery that we have in my quilting class each session.  This time around, I figured I couldn't go wrong with the tried and true Churn Dash block.  I made one for the Just Takes 2 project as a 6" block and it was just adorable.  I was going to make exactly the same block for the block lottery, but in the end I decided that 6" is a little too small.  Not enough blocks get entered to make anything of any size with a 6" block, so I decided to enlarge it to a 7 1/2" block.  Still a cute block!

Now that class is starting tonight, I'll be able to get back to some of my own projects.  I won't need to have any more projects ready until September, so I can play all summer on whatever project I please!  I'll probably try to get caught up on the Just Takes 2 project.  Those blocks come out at such a fast pace, I've fallen quite a bit behind while working on class projects.

Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what is on everyone's Design Walls today!
