Nested Churn Dash Quiltalong

Do you want to join in the nested churn dash quilt along?  One of my online BFFs, Quiltjane has designed a fabulous nested churn dash quilt block and is prepping for a quilt-a-long starting 1st June 2014.  The block pattern can be purchased and downloaded from here and here.  She will be taking you through the steps to make a 24" x 24" nested churn dash block which you can see in the pic above.  Ten of the top ladies in the quilt averse will be joining Jane along the way (see schedule below).  

For the more adventurous, you can continue on and using the 24" x 24" finished block you can make a pillow or mini quilt or make a quilt, ranging in size from 28" x 80" (1 x 3 block bed runner), 54" x 54" (2 x 2 block setting), 80" x 80" (3 x 3  block setting) and 106" x 106" (4 x 4 block setting).  Jane will provide instructions for each setting.
