Alright, so here’s the breakdown for Week Three:

  • In Week Two, you should have decided on which Option of the Cheeky Churn Dash you’re making–Option A or Option B.  You also should have kind of looked over the Accordion Sewn HST™ Method and decided if you’ll be using that method of piecing your HSTs or the standard piecing method outlined on pages 6-7 of your pattern.  If you chose the method outlined in pages 6-7, you starched your fabric already.  So here’s the action list to complete for Week Three!
  • For Option Aoption page
    • If using the Accordion Sewn HST™ Method, draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other on the wrong side of each square designated for half-square triangles.
    • If using the standard method, follow the instructions outlined in pages 6-7 to make the HST blocks.
      • Check out the video for the Cheeky Churn Dash.
      • Assemble a total of 24 half square triangles made from combining fabrics B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I.  Assemble a total of 12 half square triangles made from combining one Fabric A with one fabric B-I.  So for Option A you will have 36 HSTs.
  • For Option B
    • If using the Accordion Sewn HST™ Method, draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other on the wrong side of each square designated for half-square triangles.
    • If using the standard method, follow the instructions outlined in pages 6-7 to make the HST blocks.
      • Check out the video for the Cheeky Churn Dash.
      • Assemble a total of 33 half square triangles made from combining fabrics B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I.  Assemble a total of 12 half square triangles made from combining one Fabric A with one fabric B-I.  So for Option A you will have 45 HSTs.
  • For both options-press your HSTs well.
  • This week, post a picture of your stacks of completed HST blocks on Instagram using the #cheekychurndashquiltalong hashtag.  Be sure you post your IG picture with the hashtag before the start of Week Four to qualify for this week’s prize!  Week Three’s prize is sponsored by Crafter’s Companion– and they’re offering up a gorgeous fat quarter bundle and thread set!
  • These are my completed HSTs for week three!  I can’t wait to see yours!

Next week, we’ll be squaring up all the half-square triangles!
