Sorbet Churn Dash Quilts for Siblings Together ✓

By the skin of my teeth I'm getting my last finish of the quarter. You may remember back....................ages ago I asked for Churn Dash blocks so that I could make a girls quilt for the Siblings Together Summer Camps.
Well I was very much delighted with the amount of amazing blocks I received, just over 120 of them, from as far afield as America and Germany and of course an awful lots from closer to home. Then back in April I added these to my Q2 FAL list to get me moving on putting them together,
Well I can safely say they are together, quilted and washed ready to be sent off to the charity just in time for the summer camps.
I asked for the blocks to be from a colour palate of sorbetish pinks, purples, yellows and turquoises so they could be the girly ones and you guys really didn't let me down.
The Pink One. 
The Yellow One.
I used a strip of blocks for the backs with good old Ikea nummer, sorry if your blocks are on the back, some of mine are too!! 
I quilted them diagonally though the middle of the blocks, simply as it was the quickest way to make sure they would be ready. 

The Details :

Pattern - Churn Dash Block by Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew used with her permission
Size - 60"x70"
Binding - donated by Lynne at Lily's Quilts

So all they need is they labels which I need to ask Catherine for, these labels are very kindly printed and donated by Spoonflower and Catherine keeps them safe and distributes them all to us. Spoonflower wrote a lovely blog post here about Siblings Together and I might add they are my blocks on their site!!!! ARRGGHH!!! 

So thank you very very much for all you amazing people who took the time to make blocks with your time and fabric. Without you, these quilts would not have been made and would not be going to the children at camps this summer, giving siblings within the care system a hug in a quilt that is theirs and theirs alone. It really is an amazing community that we belong to, have a look at these posts for the lovelies that donated blocks. 
So that goodnight to this quarter and June from me and my helper!!!
See you tomorrow for my monthly makes!!!

  1. Well done Jo! These are so lovely and I love the backs too. I'm hoping they will go to sisters :)

  2. Well done for doing this. They are huge and will be very useful to the lucky new owners

  3. These are fab! Love them both :)

  4. The quilts look lovely, although it's a shame that my blocks didn't seem to make any of your posts or the final quilts. Maybe they will be put to good use in another project!

  5. Great finish in under the radar Joanne!

  6. They are amazing. I really love the addition of the large block in each. Well done.


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
