Churn Dash

Hopefully everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving meal and was surrounded by great friends and family. We ended up doing a Thanksgiving marathon, with 4 meals total. Whew, I'm stuffed.

These last couple of weeks have been super busy, but I have been able to get some quilts finished. The first quilt finished was my Churn Dash quilt. This quilt has been looming over my WIP list since the spring retreat. The quilt turned out super sweet using both a layer cake, and a charm pack. 

Quilt Stats: 

  • Finished Size: 60 inches x 60 inches 
  • Pattern: Churn Dash
  • Fabric: Fresh Cut by Moda
  • Batting: 80/20 Blend
  • Thread: Connecting Threads - Light Pink
  • Quilting: Stipple 

The backing using up extra charm squares

While visiting my parents for one of our Thanksgiving day feasts, I tried going up to our local arch and taking pictures. It was way to windy up there to get any good shots, but it would have been cool. Here is the only shot I took.

  1. 4 Thanksgiving meals?! Wow, that definitely qualifies as a marathon. The churn dash quilt turned out very nicely and is in a very sweet color scheme. Great quilt pattern to use up a layer cake and charm pack.

  2. Glad you got some sewing time in between all those meals. :) It's always good to get a old WIP off the pile and finished. I can just imagine the beautiful photo shoot that could have taken place had the wind cooperated.

  3. love the idea of using a layer cake and a charm pack! Could you give the cutting instructions for the layer cake please?

  4. I bought that line as well but haven't been able to make up my mind on what to do with it. I love the churn dash you did, and I may have to steal your idea. Great job.

  5. Hi! This is really beautiful! I love the pattern and your fabrics are adorable! x Teje

  6. So sweet, and that arch will definitely make a great quilt shot element someday. :) 4 meals? Man, I wouldn't have to eat for ages. ;) We had an ice storm. The school still doesn't have me!!!! lol

  7. What a clever idea to use up a layer cake and a charm pack. I like the fabric range you chose.
    FOUR Thanksgiving dinners?! Yikes!

  8. that seems like a lot of turkey dinners! Turned out a really pretty quilt in the finish!

  9. Love the fabrics! What a warm and cheery quilt for this gray winter!
