Pattern Details

This 12” Spinning Churn Dash block combines a simple pinwheel with the classic churn dash to create a new spin on a classic block. And just like the classic churn dash block it is very quick and easy to make. This pattern, like all Patchsmith patterns comes with easy-to-follow instructions and full colour diagrams to speed you on your way. The block will measure 12½” when made (unfinished size) and once stitched into a quilt it will measure 12” (finished size) So why not spin four or five into a table runner or join twelve blocks together for a snazzy lap quilt. (p.s. This block is also known historically as ‘Prairie Queen’.) This pattern is for personal use but permission is also granted to make this item to sell provided the item is handmade by you and you credit the Patchsmith for the design. No mass production allowed.

I am the Patchsmith. I patch, applique, sew and quilt. I have been creating a life of fabric, fun and friends for many, many years. I believe a pattern should be easy to follow, with clear diagrams and full-size templates. Value is also very important to me - both in terms of fabric wastage and to the buyer. Patchwork is about sharing and that is why all my patterns are priced for everybody to afford. To contact me visit my blog ( and click on 'About the Patchsmith' or email me at
