Farmer’s wife: Churn Dash

Traditionally, Churn Dash is done in two different colours. But since I have already done Wrench in two colours, I thought I could give this one more distinction by using three.

If you do the background triangles at the corners in a different print than the rest of the background, you can create a secondary pattern when doing a quilt with churn dash blocks only.

Another very pretty alternative is to do the centre square in the same print as the inner triangles. But then you loose the ring-like look and thus the link to the block’s name.

  1. I love this block and have done several quilts with varying sizes. It’s easy right, and that makes it even more appealing. Nice colour combo.
