Pattern guides you through the steps of foundation piecing your own liberated churn dashes in the two sizes I used to make my quilt. Lots of photos and tips throughout. Pattern was tested for accuracy and clarity. Make it modern, make it scrappy, make it now!
Background Fabric: 10 yards
Use a Solid colour to recreate modern look of cover quilt
Backing Fabric: 9 yards
A directional print can help in quilt assembly—and create a 2 sided quilt!
Churn Dash Fabric: 6 Yards TOTAL
My suggestion is 1/2 yard of 12 different fabrics
Create a fabric palette using all cool or all warm colours.
I used a minimum of 10 different prints in each churn dash to create the cover quilt.
Fabric can be directional or not, have a theme, be batiks or solids. The amount of fabric varies greatly depending on how much of each you use and where (bigger churns use more fabric)
Binding Fabric: 1 yard
I used leftovers churn dash fabrics for the binding .
Queen Size Batting
Or at least 9—32 inch squares of batting
Quilting Thread to match Background Fabric
Long Ruler or cutting edge—mine is 22 1/2 inches long
Walking Foot—optional but useful
