    Tippy,

    What a wonderful tutorial! How creative of you to use a fussy cut for the center block -- who would have thought of that? -- well, you did! I appreciate the advice, too, about selecting colors to go with the fuzzy cut square. This tutorial makes me feel like you are sitting right with me giving me guidance. Thank you so much.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your mum. Are you going to make the fussy cut churn dash quilt for her? She probably still loves birds even if she doesn't express it anymore.

    Thanks for the very clear and precise tute. Love the fabric as well. Look forward to seeing the finished quilt. I love your idea of using the panel in the backing making a reversible quilt. Beautiful!

    What a great tutorial - you are a born teacher :-) Timing was good, too, as I have some Christmas fabric with beautiful cardinals that I was trying to decide how to use. Thanks!

    OK.. Here's the information so many are asking.. I got the fabric at Wal Mart.. the information on the selvege is Spring Creative Products Group.. Wild Wings by Rosemary Millette. The panel is called Bird Sanctuary. You are all so sweet with your compliments.. Wish I could take all of the creative credit.. but I must admit that one of the Drs I work with is a quilter who works at the hospital weekends. A couple of weeks ago she came in to work.. saw me and said "I have something for you".. ran out and came in with a bag of quilt blocks.. (it was so funny as we work in the operating room). Don't worry it was a lull in the activity.. everyone looked stunned..lol.. she said I'll pay you XX dollars if you can get these done for me this weekend. Well.. of course I did it.. and the blocks were similar to these..I loved the birds so much I wanted to find something similar to do and when I went to Wal Mart the next day... ta da!!! There was the same fabric.. which I snatched up.. but thanks for thinking I'm that smart. Honestly you can dress up MANY blocks with a bit of fussy cutting. And this fabric is great as the way the birds are printed there is almost NO waste!! very unusual with fussy cutting.

    I see no reason that you couldn't. just make sure your "bits" are all in proportion.

    This is great!! Soooooo easy and just precious. This gives me an idea on how to use up that sports material that's been just sitting there. Great job!!!

    great job. I did this pattern in 2007 for my grandson in Iraq and had it ready in 2008 when he was discharged. I remembered this pattern from my early childhood ( I started quilting at 11 yrs). I used the same measurements, the center block was made from outdoor scenes: deer, fishing, hiking, (he is a marathon runner), and patriotic scenes. He really loved the quilt, and has it with him at college. I quilted in the ditch, using a beige backing and brown variegated thread. the quilted pattern shows on the back. I was not on face book so I do not have a picture to show. happy quilting to all.

    Thanks, Tippy. I'm not afraid of Churn Dash any more! Been wanting to make one. Do you have the tut in a format that can be printed out easily? I'd love to add it to my hints/tips binder.

    At this point I don't .. but I'm discussing with more "techie" friends the possibility of making a booklet with some tutorials in them.. a pdf format is also a possibility.. I'll keep it in mind and let you know.. I'll talk to my sis.. she's a whiz at that stuff and let you know.

    What a neat idea. I have some of that fabric and the panel. Now I want to dig it out and start a quilt.
