Texty Churn Dash Quilt


I am so in love with my new quilt. I finished it early last month but haven't been able to blog about it until now. Hubby got me a new laptop for our 8 year anniversary (yay!!) so I'll be able to blog more and work on some new patterns.





For this quilt, I made twenty 12" blocks using a variety of pink, yellow, grey and texty fabrics. I have always loved the churn dash block and have used it on smaller projects like bags and pouches but decided it was time to make a cozy quilt out of them. I really enjoyed fussy cutting some of my favorite prints for the centers of each block. I think my favorite block is the yellow dog print with the pink frame. Why are Heather Ross prints so adorable?!?

Quilt Stats
block: church dash
fabrics used: variety of designer prints (heather ross, melody miller, echino, etc)
completed size: approx. 48" x 60"
binding: machine stitched in front, hand stitched in back
quilting: vertical straight lines along seams
