Taught by Heather Jones
The charming Churn Dash block dates back to the early 1800s. (The block design resembles an overhead view of a butter churn, as the story goes.) Modern quilter and designer Heather Jones gives this traditional block a contemporary refresh using a cheeky print. Follow the step-by-step instructions here to make a set of your own modern Churn Dash Blocks.
Learn how to:
  • Create half-square triangles
  • Square off blocks using a quilting ruler
  • Assemble the Churn Dash block
