Churn Dash | Modern Style

Well folks! Finally!

I have been teasing you with pictures of this beauty for a while and now I can show you the final quilt.
For those that are newer followers here, I really lean towards modern, sparse, and clean. For some reason I have taken a liking to the churn dash (a traditional block) so I decided to cut into my most favorite fabrics and make one.

The quilting is all straight lines using Aurifil 50 weight thread and it was quilted on my home machine.
My favorite part of making this quilt was the binding because I enjoy the hand sewing.




I love this picture because it shows Austin doing what she does best, her own thing!

  6. I feel the same way about the churn dash! Can't explain the attraction, but I just really love it. :) Yours is great--I really like the dark gray with the pink and aqua.

  9. Amazing ! Just looked at a churn dash made in 1940 that was autographed. Hope you did or will attach a label on it. Thank you.
