Happy Friday, friends, and welcome to block four, Churn Dash, of Fat Quarter Shop’s 2019 Threadology Quilt Along. Normally, I try to share a short cut or technique for each block, but honestly, they don’t get much simpler than the churn dash block! Love it!
Clean and Simple (the work space)
If I had any tip to share this month, it merely would be: keep it clean, simple, organized. I’m not talking about the entire house or even the sewing room as a whole, but keep the process streamlined. Maybe it’s from years of working in a factory, managing quality control, but I think if your actual project and work space are in order when starting a project, things go more smoothly and a lot quicker.
And that’s my big advice for the day, lol! Here are my Churn Dash pictures, but scroll to the bottom for a bit more news.
I was loving my large block and the “cross stitch” print, as I like to think of it. It had a vintage feel to it, and had me digging through some of my grandma’s hand-me-down notions.
Even with four small blocks to make, they are so fast!
I think I’d enjoy doing an entire quilt of big, scrappy churn dash blocks.
Bonus Setting Patterns
The final thing I want to share with you, in case you were unaware, is that Fat Quarter Shop made available additional setting patterns, to be unlocked as donations reached $3,500, $7,000 and $10,000 goals. All those goals were surpassed and here are the bonus patterns!!
Fat Quarter Shop has now set a stretch goal of $20,000 in donations to Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas! Keep donating and they will be unlocking one final free bonus pattern and you will be helping a great cause!
Just a reminder that this year’s QAL benefits Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas. Fat Quarter Shop offers all of the patterns for free, but offers the opportunity to make a $5 donation per pattern download to support Make-A-Wish. All proceeds from the pattern downloads will be donated to Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas, with Moda Fabrics partnering along. To learn more about the cause you can view this Make-A-Wish video.
