Get Creative with the Background Color to Show Off the Blocks!

We love when a quilter does something unexpected, turning a traditional pattern into something fresh and new. That’s the case with this beauty from designer Deanne Eisenman.

The Churn Dash blocks in this quilt have been set off to perfection inside a lattice against a beige background. What makes this unusual is that the lattice is light and the background is of a medium value. Typically the lattice would be a darker value and the background would be light.

We also love the pieced border that picks up colors in the blocks. It’s a beautiful finishing touch.

This is a wonderful project for cleaning out some of those scraps in your stash. It’s an easy one, too. It’s all simple straightforward piecing.

You’ll have fun with this pattern, selecting your lattice and background colors. For some reason, we keep seeing the background as a lovely fern green (complementing a coordinating set of blocks), but you’ll surely have your own ideas.

The finished quilt is 64″ x 64″.

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!
