A stretched Churn Dash quilting pattern that is quick and easy , and which you will love to use again and again.
In this workshop Valerie has taken the traditional Churn Dash block (which is on a standard 9-patch square grid) and stretched the middle row so that that it becomes rectangles.
Since these sections are strip-pieced they are still quick and easy to make and will be cut from the same strip-pieced section you have created.
As well as a variety of sizes, Valerie has used a variety of border options, too to give you inspiration.
This would also be a really lovely design created with scraps of fabric – maybe a different fabric for each of the Stretched Blocks; it takes surprising little fabric and you if you have matching layer cakes and nickle packs, this would work too.
For the corners of the Church Dash Valerie likes to use the quick triangle method where you cut squares, and then trim back to being a perfect size; if you would like to see a fuller version of this, Fast & Accurate Half Square Triangles
