Just before we left for vacation in July, I started these giant churn dash blocks. Here are the goals I accomplished with this one: I wanted (1) to do a churn dash quilt; (2) a quick, easy project; and (3) a large block to showcase some pretty prints (Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille).
Each block measures 24 inches -- awesome! When you put three together, that's automatically a 72-inch quilt. The best part? You only need 9 fat quarters of various prints, and there is very little waste of those fat quarters with the cutting lay-out.
I thought it would be fun to share how easily these blocks came together. I put together some initial notes -- I will post the actual sewing tomorrow, but I thought I'd start with the supply list and cutting instructions for the fat quarters.
9 fat quarters of coordinating prints - blocks
3 yards solid - blocks
Backing - 2 1/4 yards
Binding - 1/2 yard
Finished Quilt 72" x 72"

|Fat Quarter (20" x 18") - cut carefully, as you can see there's very little wasted fabric!|
