Did you all enjoy Fox and Geese around a Double T last week? It’s a great block, you could sew a dozen of them together and make quite a nice lap quilt. It’s available now at my Etsy shop if you didn’t get it downloaded yet.

The second block in First Notes is the Elongated Churndash. This block is a bit smaller, but still chock full of quilty goodness! Cassandra did an amazing job taking such a traditional block and giving it a new twist.

The pattern for the Elongated Churndash can now be found at The Not So Dramatic Life Etsy Shop.

This week we are happy to introduce two sponsors!!!


Red Rooster Quilts is offering one lucky U.S. resident a $50 gift certificate! It’s stash building time!⁠
