Basic Skills Necessary:

  • use a sewing machine

Pattern Description:

This quilt came out of my turn in an online quilting bee. I designed this block while playing with scraps and my husband requested it for his quilt. My bee mates helped by making some of the small liberated churn dash blocks from my tutorial. I refined and improved those instructions, plus included how to quilt each panel separately so you can quilt this big quilt on your domestic sewing machine. Of course, you can make it the traditional way too by sewing all the blocks together to make the quilt top.
I love the color palette of this quilt - no orange! I can barely believe it! But I can see this quilt done with a print for the background and solids for the churns, or all in Christmas fabrics, or even prints from all one line of fabric.
Have fun, learn an easy way to foundation piece, and create a modern masterpiece for yourself!
