Second patchwork block completed.

Yesterday I attended my second Patchwork class. J. taught us how to make a pattern called "Churn Dash"(?). Here is mine:
I've continued my Tea Party theme with this one, but each week I'll decide whether to use another fabric unrelated to that theme. For instance, the third class we'll be learning the "Drunkards Path" (??) pattern, and I'm thinking of using some Aboriginal art fabric, because I think it would look fabulous in that design of swirls. I won't be at the class next Tuesday (it is my Guild day), so J. has given me the pattern so I can make my templates and cut out the fabrics ready for the following week, which will save a lot of time. Drunkards Path looks complicated, so if I can have the fabric ready, I can sail straight into learning how to put it together.
As well as doing Patchwork, I've been working on an ATC and a Round Robin - both in Cross stitch and both nearly finished, so I'll probably post photos of them in the next day or so.

I like this block, I think it is the colours as they go so well together. I've got my ATC done this week, just trying to get the RR finished now

These colors work great together and I love the teacup fabric in the middle. You did a great job on it!
Patricia :o)

Love the teacup, that is so clever. I am still struggling to make a patchwork card, think I'll stick to cross stitch.
