Modern Churn Quilt



In this quilt the traditional churn dash block has been enlarged and stretched out to make it new again. There is added interest by linking them together and combining different sizes. They have the illusion of floating as the churn dashes come forward and recede back. Our optional kits come in different prints and colors or you can come to class and create your own from our wide range of fabrics. This quilt is so fun to plan out because it suits so many different fabrics, large vs small prints, low volume vs bright colors, it works for so many different styles.

In this class you will learn how to plan and organize the quilt layout. You will learn how to place and cut directional fabrics and you will learn to make half square triangles.

In class you will cut and plan the fabrics for your quilt including any directional fabrics. There is a tricky spot where the sewing needs to happen in a specific order. The instructor will start the sewing there so that the potential problem area is done in class. You will not be able to finish the quilt in class so please anticipate homework.
