FO: Churndash Brite

Remember the Marcelle Medallion affair? Where I made a quilt, start to finish, in one month?

Well, that happened again. I got the churndash block in my brain, and made block after block.

I started with a bundle that Holly created for Pink Castle Fabrics. You can see the starting bundle in this post. I went through the stash, and added lots of other prints for variety, but stuck to the color palette Holly chose.

Each block is 8.5" unfinished, and there are thirty-six blocks. I tried to make sure I varied the background color in each block, and tried many different color combinations within the blocks.

Churndash Back

I found a coordinating coral sheet at Target, which I used for the back. I chose to quilt a grid, which surrounds each churndash center. For a little added interest, I also free-motion quilted a design in the center of blocks in one row and one column.

It finishes at 50" square.

And I love it.

  6. Oh wow, I absolutely love this! Your quilt just makes me want to forget about all the WIPs I have lined up in my sewing space and just start cutting into my Chicopee stash I've been hoarding. I specifically reserved that stash for a churn dash quilt. I think your quilt just put me over the edge and gave me just the right bit of motivation to finally start it :)
