More Nine Patches and those Churn Dash blocks!

Well I did make a few more of those nine-patches

Here are 12 blocks out of 16 which will make a 4x4 layout.  

Using the other four nine patches I completed 4 churn dash blocks to try out my solids choices against the thirties fabric.   Unlike Julie's quilt I am using the same solids for each Churn Dash.  

And then I added a thin sashing strip with contrasting cornerstone in the same fabrics as the ninepatches.  So far I am liking it!  

I was not sure of the size of Julie's nine patches but I am sure mine are giant-sized compared to hers.  No little lap quilt this after all!  This is one-quarter of the quilt top unless I add a border too.

But I cannot finish without getting more of those solid fabrics - back to Mandy at Simply Solids then...


block size  14.5" square
quarter quilt size 30" square 
projected quilt size 60" square

Solids are Kona Peridot and Snow from Mandy at Simply Solids
Inspiration from Juliekquilts

  1. That is going to be a very nice quilt SS. Keep it up so that it doesn't become a UFO (I am laughing here - says she the queen of all UFO's). Thanks for directing me to JulieKquilts. Always good to ogle a few more quilts.

  2. Love Churn Dash! This is a great quilt....combining the churn dash and a nine patch!

  3. Uhooi,,

  5. I love it and the green is wonderful and sassy!

  6. They look brilliant with the solid green and the narrow sashing!

  7. I like this very much - my colours too! I must try and use someting other than white for sashing!
