Churn Dash Quilt

The churn dash quilt is finished. This was a quick quilt, but it still looks super nice. I like using a large, easy building block and then winging the sashing with left-over fabric. A quick quilt is good for the soul, especially when it is going to go to a close family friend. Get ready, here comes a lot of pictures...


The contrast of the fabric was hard to catch with the camera. It is subtle. The batiks look much better in person. The khaki frost fabric has a metallic sheen to it that blends lovely with the batiks. Again, it's hard to catch that with the camera. 


Just a few quilts ago, I was terrified at doing binding. Look at me now! 


A simple free motion meander quilting design was all that this quilt needed.



Quilt Stats:
Design: Me
Fabric: Robert Hoffman Spa Retreat Batik and Michael Miller Khaki Fairy Frost
Thread: Aurifil for piecing
Quilting: All-over free motion meander with Isacord thread in linen
Dimensions: 72" x 72" before washing, but I don't think it shrunk much
