Marsha's Log: President's Block

Each year at the end of the President's term in the quilt guild, they choose a block that they want everyone to make. In the past they've been simple like a 9 patch, or a half square triangle. This year the outgoing President chose the churn dash block. She wants her President's quilt to have continuity, so she gave us each the cream colored fabric. The choices for the other color, or colors are ours. I went to my scrap drawer and found these blues. Oh yes, we each sign our name in the center of the blocks. I can't wait to see what her finished quilt looks like, and she's not one to mess around taking forever to get quilts done. I can probably do a post with a picture of it once she brings it done to show to us at guild. I made this my first project at the retreat this past weekend to make sure that I had it done to take to the meeting this month.

I like the square. You will have to show us the finished quilt.

If I didn't already have too may unfinished projects and too many that I yet want to start, I would like to make a quilt top myself with the blocks.

You are doing well to have planned that first. I really like both the looks of the setting and your choice of blues.

I did the same thing at the retreat last April...made sure to get the President's block made first thing since I hadn't gotten it done yet.

I am not a big fan of the cream color ai prefer pure white but I love the blue pattern.

I only made one, then the others in the quilt guild are to each make one too. We have around 75 members so it will be interesting what it looks like all together.

I think this is the first time I've done a churn dash block.

Never know what I might find just when I want it in my sewing room....just wish I could actually work in there and get to my stuff easier.
