Churn dash Quilt Together!

 Yesterday in-between homework I was able to piece together my churn dash quilt. I have to say now that it's all together I like it much more than I did as individual blocks!
The colors are so scrappy and yet they go together pretty well.

Little chickens were not to impressed with it, as you can see. They think just because I come outside I'm going to give them treats! And while most of the time that is true, today I was not and they were protesting, so it may not have been the quilt top they were disapproving of, so much of the lack of treats!
The whole thing is just large enough for my bed. 6 blocks up and down, measuring at 12" each. 
I am thinking a pretty vintage sheet would look nice as a backing, but I'll be putting this top away for a bit until something speaks to me for a backing!

And of the 100 2 1/2 inch squares I cut for my leaders and enders when I started this quilt, well lets just say I need to get cutting, I'm out! Just one more thing to add to the list of things to do!


  1. Very pretty! A vintage textile would be a great backing choice. I hope you find one you like!

  2. You did a lovely job on this! I agree, a vintage sheet would look nice on this! :)
