I finished my Churn Dash Quilt over the weekend.
From start to finish, this quilt took me under two weeks to complete.
I am so happy with the way this quilt turned out, from the fabric choices, to my first beautifully mitered corners (I’ve never been really successful with my corners but seem to have turned a corner…hahaha, couldn’t resist that one!!)
I followed the Churn Dash Quilt Along by Amy Smart on We all Sew. As a new sewer/quilter/blogger, I was thrilled to get a comment by Amy on my previous post. Diary of a Quilter was perhaps one of the first quilting blogs I ever read!.
I have never really favoured the colour green when it comes to fabric, but feel as though this quilt has ended up as a “green” quilt. Maybe that is due in part to the feature fabric, Mineral Forest by Lori Mason for Andover fabric.
I originally bought two metres of this fabric on sale ( I rarely ever buy more than a half metre cut) and decided to splurge the rest on the pieced backing, which I particularly like.
The quilting was simply straight line quilting with white Gutermann thread. I echoed the centre of the Churn Dash block both vertically and horizontally using the edge of my walking foot.
I decided to bind this quilt in one of my favourites, Basics Green Stripe by Cotton and Steel. Chartreuse is definitely my fave at the moment!
This is definitely my most favourite of the few quilts I have made so far in my short quilting life. I enjoyed every step of the quilting process!
I hope you like it too! Deb 🙂
