The Churn Dash Quilting Block

The Churndash quilt block is my personal favorite block.  I like the symmetry and the shapes of the block. 

 

The Churndash is another easy blocks, and another block that has been around for years.  It has one square in the middle, 4 half square triangles in the corners, and then a block made up of two rectangles on each side.

 

the grids of the churn dash quilt blockAs you can see from the picture at the left, the churndash is a 9-patch block, so it works well with a lot of other blocks.  Personally, I like to see this block repeated and by itself, whether it is scrappy or has a planned color scheme.

 

Once you decide how big to make the patches, make the half square triangles, piece together the rectangles for the sides, and cut the squares for the center of the block. This block goes together very quickly when you strip piece the rectangles. This block looks wonderful in a diagonal set, and with many different fabrics.

 

Sew the units together, and you are done.  I also like to see this block with alternating large squares of solid fabric.  It makes a fast and easy quilt.
