I Am a Quilter, a brand new quilter, in fact. I wanted to tell my story in fabric in a simple way to show everyone that quilting is easy and you CAN do it, even if you’re a beginner. I’ve been quilting less than a year, but it didn’t take me long to figure out what I love the most. The first place I got hooked was with the fabrics—there are so many fabulous choices. I made my own fabric for this block by strip-piecing a few of my favorite prints together, then cutting the block pieces from that pieced cloth. It was a great (and easy) way to use lots of fabrics. Choosing a design was easy, too. I decided to make my favorite block— the Churn Dash.
