Vintage Sheets, Take One

My vintage sheet stash is slowly growing.  In fact, I made a deal with myself that I wouldn’t buy any more sheets until I made at least one thing.  So, in a day or two, I whipped up this churn dash in a churn dash in a churn dash.  I was just going to do the inner two blocks for a little wall hanging for my studio, but then I figured why not make something giant.  It’s not like I’m going to run out of sheets or anything, even though they are fairly sparse here in Texas.


I didn’t use a pattern because a churn dash is fairly simple.  Look at it as a nine patch grid.  Start in the center with the smallest block, and work your way out.  It was way fun to make, and in the event you’re planning a quick mystery quilt class for your friends, this would be an easy way to go, and everyone would leave with a finished top!  Let me know if you give it a whirl.

    Love it! You’ve brought back memories of when I first learned to quilt. Churn dash was one of the first blocks I made.
