Update a Classic Block with Pieced Scraps!
This aptly named quilt makes use of every little bit of fabric left over from other projects. It’s a great project for small scraps and one you can work on a little at a time.
Scrappy Churn Dash blocks come together in a beautiful quilt. This is a great example of turning pieces too small to use elsewhere into treasure.
Piece a few small scrappy sections at a time as you’re working on other projects and finish the quilt when you have enough ready. The instructions specify paper piecing but a lightweight fabric foundation and string piecing could be used instead. That way there’s no paper to remove.
Choose inner and outer borders to complement your scraps. In the end you’ll have a wonderful quilt to enjoy for years to come.
The finished quilt, designed by Pam Buda from Heartspun Quilts, is 66 1/2 x 74 1/2″. Or use the 6″ blocks in another project. The quilt originally appeared in the June, 2015 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.
You’ll also need the foundation templates, found here.
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!
