I returned Sunday from the Jane Stickle Quilt Retreat held at the Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana, Indiana. Normally when I post about the retreat, I show you everything I've worked on. I'm not that organized this year. The suitcases are put away but the projects are not unpacked yet.
I can show you this large churn dash crib quilt I pieced. The fabrics have traveled to several retreats but were never sewn. It measures approximately 48" x 54". I didn't have a pattern, just figured it out on my own. Easy, Peasy!
At the January 2018 guild meeting, I'm demonstrating spiral quilting. This is such an easy technique, hey if I can do it, so can others. Anyway, I decided I needed to get a crib quilt pieced and ready to go. Now I just need to get the layers together and I'll be ready to quilt!
Here it is displayed on the buggy next to a Christmas tree.
I'm attaching a link to Rosemary's blog. She always makes a lovely smile box of Show & Tell at the retreat. Enjoy the show!

Your churn dash block pulled me right in - I had to see what's up! I love spiral quilting. I am sure you will have many converts after your demonstration. I'll check out Rosemary's link to see her retreat update. Shipshewana isn't too far away for me . . . I will have to check out the retreat schedule. ~smile~ Roseanne
So pleased you had a great time at your retreat......
I havent' tried spiral quilting yet, but I love it every time I see someone do it. That buggy is the perfect place to show off your churn dash top!

Oh, I love the Farmhouse Inn! I was there one year at Dear Jane time. Couldn't believe people had made 3,4 or more of them! I like your churn dash crib quilt. claire aka knitnkwilt
