Churn dash block

The next block in the ‘My Favourite Block Quiltalong’, hosted over on the Persimon Dreams website, is the Churndash block. The blocks on this quiltalong. so far, have been favourites that many quilters would be familiar with, but it’s always fun to see the variations you can get when you play around with your choice of fabrics.
Like in my previous posts on this, I have made a few of this block in the two different colourways that I’m trying out. This first one is using bright colours and contrasting them with paler, or lighter value, colours.

I’ve also made two blocks using these other fabrics:

With this colourway, I originally started with a range of fabrics given to me in a Christmas exchange- that’s the brown/cream/green/aqua/pink fabrics. When I went looking in my cupboard for some more to add to them, I was able to find quite a few different ones to contrast. Funny what you find when you look!

Have you thought about joining in the Quiltalong?
I’m also linking up to the Small Blog Meet here – a great special feature hosted by Lily’s Quilts for small blog owners to hopefully connect with lots of others.

  1. Great job, I haven’t tried scrappy backgrounds yet, that’s so out of my comfort zone.
