    I just completed this quilt last week. It is actually a churn dash block with the corners reversed. My mother-in-law is Greek so i thought she would like this. It was a thank you for her taking my 19 year old daughter for a week in Florida.

    very pretty, im sure she will love it :D
    i love your use of churn dash pattern :D
    one of my favorite things about quilting is how there can be so many different overall looks that can be made with 1 pattern, depending on fabrics and layout :D

    If I make her a quilt, would she take my husband for a week?
