Kim Diehl's Simple Friendships II Stitch-Along Mystery Sampler - Week 4

Week 4 of the Simple Friendships II Stitch-Along is here, and the finish line is in sight! The blocks Kim has been seeing are crazy gorgeous, we all thank you so much for joining in.
Homework for Week 4 is to stitch four over-the-top-adorable Churn Dash blocks measuring 3 1/2” square (beginning at Kindle location 86). This is the week that Kim's been extra excited to share because she loves these blocks! You can see by looking at her's that she had a grand time choosing print combinations, even reversing the light and dark values. Kim encourages you to do the same and just have fun.

Please continue sharing your weekly progress using the #SimpleFriendships2QAL label to enter yourself in the drawing at the end of this stitch along, and also to sprinkle a little eye candy around. 

Here’s a great finishing tip for this week’s patchwork: Lay a pieced block WRONG side up on a clean pressing surface and give it a light misting of Best Press (plain water in a spray bottle will also work nicely); while the cloth is still damp, press the seams from the BACK of the block, ensuring they’re resting in the intended direction. Repeat with the remaining blocks. This step will set the seams firmly in place for blocks that look crisp and lay beautifully flat, without adding shine to the cloth from the front.
