Simply Solids - August

Teressa, this month, asked for the Churn Dash block in my Simply Solids Bee.

You know, funny thing, this churn dash. I have never liked this pattern but in the last couple of months, I have done a 180 and it's lovely. It was great to make this for my bee mate.

As a matter of fact, I have a special project where I owe a block and I made a....guess it...churn dash!

For my special project I had to utilize my math skills to make it into a 9" block (finished). Always remember the seam allowances!

The easiest tutorial I have ever seen for this block, was presented by the lovely Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Company.  She makes everything seem so easy, and really it is!  Check them out when you need some inspiration and if you have any pre-cut bundles laying around, she'll be able to inspire you to whip it up into something fabulous in no time at all.

  1. I've recently started to like the churn dash as well. So easy but such an impact!

  2. Love the Missouri Star Quilt Company - I'm enjoying seeing this block around more now too, quite a revival for it! :)

  3. It's funny, I've recently had a change of heart about the churn dash as well. I had someone request a churn dash quilt with modern fabrics with lots of white space, and it's actually one of my favorite quilts I've made. These blocks are really lovely, Julie!

  4. I love the churn dash - the choice of fabric can really change it's personality. Loving the solids, so simple yet strong.

  5. Gotta love a good churn dash block!

    Thanks for the reminder that I need to get my butt in gear and finish mine this week. Where has August gone?


I look forward to reading your note - thanks for taking the time to comment!
