FO Friday – spring blocks

Churn Dash quilt block

Guess what I made?!  More blocks!!  Big surprise.

I wasn’t sure I could get another quilt block done by the deadline (today), but last weekend Little Chick took an extra-long nap AND it was cold and rainy outside.  What better way to spend an afternoon like that than sewing?

Churn Dash quilt block

It’s a free block pattern over at Sew Can She and it’s called “Churn Dash”.  This block was quite simple and worked up in a short amount of time.  I also like the color contrast in this one.  I’ll admit… I had help with that.  I was struggling with the options and Papa came up with this variation.

Underground Crafter's 2014 Sampler Mystery Knit-a-long

I got caught up on my Underground Crafter blocks for this month. Both of these worked up in a single evening which made me feel like I actually accomplished something. I’m showing both the front and back pictures because I think both sides look great.

I’m a little behind in the Red Heart Checkerboard afghan squares, but as there isn’t really a deadline, it doesn’t matter. These also work up fairly quickly (a couple of bath-times) so once I finish with my cardigan sweater project I should get caught up.

I had hoped to snap an updated picture of the cardigan as I’m now finished with both sleeves and I started on the button band last night, but I hit snooze too many times this morning and forgot to take a picture before I left the house.
