LJ Birthday Blocks - April 6
This block is somehow one of my favourite simple, old-school blocks to make. The Churn Dash isn't terribly exciting and I can't say I'd like a whole quilt of it, but as a one-off block in a sampler quilt, I like it.
I don't think they show very well in this photo, but I really love the fabrics in this block.
I've made this block A LOT for exchanges. It's such a striking block that I find myself turning to it quite often, even though it's a hellacious amount of work. I think I prefer the way it looks when I use the same four prints in each quarter of the block, but the scrappy look is also interesting.
The colours don't show well in this photo either; the green looks almost muddy, which it isn't at all.
