Friendship Mini Sampler Quilt Part 5

A Churn Dash block today.


You will need -
          from the print -
                   2 - 2" squares for the half square triangles
                   4 - 1" x 1+1/2" rectangles
         from the background -
                   2 - 2" squares for the half square triangles
                   4 - 1" x 1+1/2" rectangles
                   1 - 1+1/2" square for the centre

Sorry - the correction is in bold! Thanks for pointing that out Deanna!


Make four half square triangles with the 2" squares (tutorial is here). Trim them to 1+1/2" squares.


Join a print and a background rectangle to make four of the above units. They should be 1+1/2" squares.


 All the units go together like this.


The finished Churn Dash. Trim the block to 3+1/2" squares.

Love this part 5. I am away from my sewing machine this week but have fabric and cutting board with me so plan to cut all the pieces and sew the blocks when I get home. Thank you! For a great 'on the road' project!

Can't go wrong with a churn dash.

Joanne, are the dimensions right on the rectangles? If the center is a 1-1/2" square, how does it match a 2-1/2" rectangle?
