WIP Wednesday: Dash in the Box

This project could just as readily be considered a UFO.  I started it in a class at Sew-Ciety in Castle Rock in January (if it's not more than one year old, does it count as a UFO?). They had a sample of the quilt in the shop, and I fell in love with the colors. LouAnn graciously helped me find all the same fabrics as were used in the sample - thanks, LouAnn! Really, the colors are more subtle than they appear in this photo (taken at night, with flash, so they don't read "true!")

It's called "Dash in the Box," because it has both a "box" design and a "Churn Dash" design. Six blocks are made from each set of three fabrics. My blocks are on the design wall with the six blocks of each three-color combination together. They'll be mixed up when I get the last set of six blocks completed!

Here is what the mixed-up blocks look like on the pattern cover:

The quilt was designed by Stephanie Prescott of A Quilter's Dream.

Although the construction is simple, keeping the colors straight make this a morning project -- not a late-night project!

  1. Ooooh, very pretty, Marti. :o)

  2. A bit of concentration needed for this one I think!! Looking forward to Friday to see it all done.

  3. Nice Marti. I like the elongated "dash". The design has a southwestern flair to it. Sandi

  4. Good day! I just want to give an enormous thumbs up for the great data you
    have right here on this post. I can be coming again to your weblog for more soon.

  5. Very cool. Yours is the first blog I clicked on from Lee's Freshly Pieced, largely because of your fun quilt at the top of the post. And good luck with your piecing challenges (52 this year)!

  6. That is a very cool quilt. Very rewarding to accomplish it, I would think! Great job!!!
