I am a member through my "facebook group" but I understand you can do it even if you do not have a facebook page... here is the info link.
They are doing the churn dash block next.. If you are over seas you might want to get a wiggle on it so the snail mail will get there on time...

This is such a labour intensive pattern but I know there are ways of doing it now that are a lot easier. Here's the cushion I made. This was back in the days when I used any fabric I could find so the border fabric is poly-cotton and the sky through the windows is cotton batiks. I don't know if my mother has ever washed it but I don't fancy it's chances.

Your moms hand work is really good. I was in Killeen and Ft Hood TX. that is where our son is stationed. He works with our wounded warriors. Thank you for posting the photos. They are really good shots. I like to click on them and they get bigger and I can see them better. I think I have sewers eyes. LOL!

She really is, Karen, and I wish I had paid a little more attention when I was younger... I'm just lucky that she is still willing and able to teach me.
