Urban Churn Dash Sew-Along {Finishing the Blocks}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

This week's step in the Urban Churn Dash Sew-Along is making the corner half-square triangles and assembling the blocks.  I've completed my nine blocks and absolutely adore them!  I very much like the way they are laid out, but I will rearrange them in rainbow order to see if I like that better.


The blocks measure 24-1/2" square, so the quilt top will measure 72" square when the blocks are sewn together.  I plan on making the quilt bigger using the 56 HSTs that were leftover from the flying geese blocks.  I'm not sure just what the layout will be, but my expert quilting helper {my 13 year-old daughter} will be sure to help me figure it out. 
I had been planning on listing this quilt in my Etsy shop until I saw it on the design wall - this is a keeper for sure and will be the next quilt on my living room wall.  I will then have rainbows on four out of five beds in the house as well as the living room!  And there is no pink in it!  DH's requirement is no pink in the living room!

And here's the huge living room wall of which I'm speaking.  It's so big that it begs for a large quilt - anything else would look very out of sorts unless it was very big or a large assortment of smaller items.  For perspective, the quilt rack is 85" - that's over 7'.
