Churn Dash

Churn Dash Quilt Block

These Churndash blocks are one of my latest projects that I have started. I love this traditional pattern and it has been on my to do list for a long time!

The Churn Dash block is also known by several other names:

  • Monkey Wrench
  • Hens and Chickens
  • Lincoln’s Platform
  • Shoo Fly
  • Hole in the Barn Door
  • Fisherman’s Reel
  • Broken Plate
  • Love Knot
  • Ludlow’s Favorite
  • Quail’s Nest


My original plan was to make all the blocks the same, that seemed a little boring so I decided to do a reverse block and still keep it a two color quilt.

This is actually a very easy pattern, just some half square triangles and some strips.

I loved this fabric design! It is Add it Up by Cotton and Steel.

I pressed most of the seams to the side, but the two larger seams when finishing the block I pressed open just to reduce some of the bulk. This will help when you get to quilting this quilt. The needle doesn’t love super bulky seams.
