I have always liked the churn dash block. I wanted to design a quilt using this block that could be made easily and made using smaller amounts of fabric. It is a great way to use up some of your stash. You can go more coordinated or very scrappy. I have included a picture of one that I made with more of a blended watercolor effect. I love that one for spring and summer. I have also included a bonus pattern for a larger churn dash block that I have used to frame an embroidery design that I made for a friend. I like how the churn dash frames it and makes it perfect for hanging on a wall. It would also make a great pillow! This design is also great to feature a fussy cut print, an applique, cross stitch, or whatever you would love for the center of it. I hope you love it as much as I do.

I have been sewing since I was 11 years old. I absolutely love it! I loved it so much that I opened a fabric shop which was open for almost 22 years. I have now retired and am having even more time to sew! I really enjoy designing patterns and I hope that you will enjoy them too!
