Make Hot Pads and More From This Scrappy Block |
Perfect for Leftover Strips of Fabric!
The traditional Churn Dash block takes on a whole new look in this scrappy version. It can be finished up into hot pads or use the blocks in a larger project.
Dig through your scraps and pull out the thin strips. They don’t all need to be the same width, and in fact the block is more interesting if they aren’t.
Once the strips are sewn together the block is constructed in the usual way. Play with fabric selection to give it different personalities.
The finished block, from Crazy Mom Quilts, is 9″ square.
The block is perfect for hot pads. Rounded corners give them a polished look. Instructions are provided by Crazy Mom Quilts for simple hot pads. Just substitute the Scrappy Churn Dash block for the pieced front.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
