I finished my little Churn Dash Quilt


Are you sewing along with us for our Classic Blocks: Fresh Fabrics series sponsored by Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics? We are seeing how gorgeous those classic quilt blocks look when sewn up in fresh new fabrics. Last month we made churn dash blocks {tutorial here}, and this past week I  finished making my 12 blocks into this baby quilt. As soon as I had finished hand stitching the binding, I stood up from the couch for a minute. When I turned my back I heard a little voice say, ‘look here’s a quilt just my size!’ 


My blocks were 6” square. I added a sawtooth border using extra half square triangles, and then I used more Kona cotton  (the color is Snow) to make it 40” square. 

The print fabrics I used are from the Modern Eclectic collection by Blend Fabrics. They are so gorgeous! In these two photos I’ve already washed and dried the quilt to make it all wrinkly and soft. I love using cotton batting to make it shrink up that way.

This month we’re sewing the Dutchman’s Puzzle block using another beautiful fabric from Blend (Clementine). Click here to see the tutorial and the fat quarter bundle you could win just by making one block!


So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
