Nested Churn Dash Quilt A Long!!!!

I am so excited to be a part of this FUN, FAST and Easy Quilt Along organized and hosted by Jane or as we all know and LOVE her Quilt Jane!  When I first saw this block I was absolutely GIDDY! It took a traditional block and gave it some ZING!  I have decided that for me, ZING is always very good! 


So I hope you will join this fun event with great designers all putting their own personal touches on this fab block designed by Jane :o) 

The following I totally ripped from Jane's page but it has all the correct info so I am sure she will not mind :o)

Nested Churn Dash Quilt-a-long - Starts June 1st 2014


Who is ready for a quilt-a-long of the Nested Churn Dash? Starting 1st June 2014, I will be taking you through the steps to make a 24" x 24" nested churn dash block.

Joining me will be 10 of my favourite quilters who will be making their blocks into a mini quilt.

For the more adventurous, you can continue on and using the 24" x 24" finished block you can make a pillow or mini quilt or make a quilt, ranging in size from 28" x 80" (1 x 3 block bed runner), 54" x 54" (2 x 2 block setting), 80" x 80" (3 x 3  block setting) and 106" x 106" (4 x 4 block setting). I will provide instructions for each setting.
