Churn Dash Four Patch

I'm having a baby!  And what goes really well with babies?  Quilts, of course. When looking for a fun baby quilt pattern, one of my quilting friends asked me if I would like to be a tester for her new Churn Dash Four Patch pattern. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity.

As life would have it, pregnancy got the better of me and it took a few months longer to get this going than expected. But, I did finally get it done, and I have to say that I love it!

The directions were easy to follow and the quilt squares came together quickly.  I had a little snafu while cutting and ended up with smaller squares than the pattern calls for, but it all turned out in the end and I'm happy with the finished size!  The pattern suggests starting with 10" squares to make cutting easier, and I definitely concur.  I used fat quarters and there was lot more measuring and cutting that needed to take place.

And what review would be complete without a photo shoot.
