Churn Dash on Point

I decided to try doing a little quilt (yes Kathie, you inspired me to make a little quilt) and was playing around with little 3 inch churn dash blocks.

Why is it that they are so much more interesting when turned on point?


I needed a break from the album applique quilts I have been working on.  This was a little kit by Rachel T Pellman called Hole in the Barn Door but the block is a churn dash to me.  It was fun to complete a quilt in a weekend and I have been inspired to get out my book Little Quilts All Through the House by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt, and Sylvia Johnson.  There are a lot of quilts in that book that would be really quilt in reproductions fabrics. .                                 

Happy Stitching!


  1. Your little quilt is lovely! I especially like how you've quilted it. From start to finish that was fast!

  2. Reminds me if thar churn dash I did with the little blocks. At least you didn't have to make hundreds of them

  3. adorable, love the fabrics you chose and the quilting is wonderful!
    funny how blocks on point are more interesting most of the time!
