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.
