Church Dash!

 I got the binding on my churn dash, which I have renamed Church Dash because of my poor typing skills! My friend Sally B quilted it for me. I love the fans!!
 I like that not every block looks like a churn dash although they are assembled the same way.
I'm back to hand quilting my DJ quilt in the evenings. I'll use my Hera marker to mark the plain triangles. I didn't have it last year (which was the last time I had it out!) I am hoping to keep quilting on this until I get one whole side finished, then I'll rotate back to Beyond The Cherry Tree blocks.

  1. Love your church dash :) It is very cool with this block that they each look so different.
    Love the hand quilting photo...do you like the hera marker? I have been thinking about buying one.

  2. Love your Churn ahem Church Dash quilt - fabulous blocks. (I almost named it Church Cash - LOL)

    It'll be so much fun to watch your handquilting progress on your Dear Jane quilt - I hope you'll share often, Lori.

  4. I love your churn/church dash. Either name, it's just beautiful! I was just telling my husband this past weekend on our road trip how much I love that pattern.

    I love the quilting on the quilt too. Wonderful!

    Be blessed :)

  5. Wow! Such a lovely quilt. I do like how the same block looks totally different when you change the color placement. The churn dash is one of my favorite blocks.

  6. Lovely church dash, Funny how you don't see your errors until after you have posted.
    I like the use of baptist fan for an overall design on a machine quilted quilt.
    Have meant to say for a while. I love the quilt in your header is it one of yours?

  10. Your church dash is wonderful! How big is it? You are very dedicated to keep going on your Dear Jane quilt. I love those quilts, but kind of doubt if I will ever make one. It would have to be hand quilted and with all those seams, I think it would be quite a chore. Is it hard to hand quilt it?

  11. Love the Church Dash! Churn Dash is one of my fave old-fashioned blocks. The fans are just perfect for that quilt.

    Wow, for a new grandma you're getting a lot of quilting done :)

  12. Beautiful!!! Love the quilting and you know... that block is forever named now. I like the xcrappy block look, too. :)

  13. Churn Dash was one of the very first quilts I made and the block has always been one of my all-time favorites. I think Baptist Fan quilting is about the most appropriate you could have for a Church Dash quilt!

    The quilting looks great too. Keep going with your DJ and you'll get there eventually.

  20. The churn dash is stunning. I once started a DJ quilt but after 15 or so blocks I realised that I would never complete it, so I am using those blocks on other quilts. Well done!

  26. Your Church Dash quilt is gorgeous. I think I am attracted mostly to it's stunning simplicity.

    The section of the DJ quilt is looking so lovely.

  34. You did a wonderful job with the "Church Dash" quilt. The fan quilting was a great pick for the quilting. It looks like you're making great progress on your quilting projects so far this year. I need to get in gear with mine.

  35. Churn/Church Dash looks like an antique quilt! I love the selection of fabrics you used.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is really lovely. It's amazing how the Churn Dash looks like a mystical sumbol when set on point. Church Dash is a good name for it! ;)

  40. Your Church Dash quilt is great - love how you captured the old fashioned look and didn't include borders. Its just perfect!

    Your DJ is going to be awesome!

  41. Your Church Dash quilt turned out just wonderful. It captures the look of an antique quilt so well. I think the fan quilting is perfect for this one.
    Handquilting progresses slowly but is fun and so worth it in the end :0)

  42. the churn dash looks very old!! (now, that means old and snuggly and perfect--not old, worn out and shabby!) Baptist fans were a wonderful choice.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh I love your Church Dash! And I really love that fan quilting. Does she use the circle lord tool? I haven't been able to find anyone who will do it to look like that. They all are using short cut like fans that are just not quite right. I miss my fans Bonnie used to do before she got so busy!
