    disappearing churn dash.

    Recently, I was at a quilting event and saw a picture of a churn dash block that had been cut similar to disappearing 4 patch. I've done several searches on the internet and just can't find it! Does anyone have a clue as to what I am talking about.

    There is a guy in Alberta who has designed a lot of patterns using the disappearing technique.
    (sorry, I can't find a link right now)

    Though when I read his blog, I realized you could turn most any quilt block into a Disappearing pattern ... you just needed to experiment and try it out. I remember his blog ... he'd show a traditional, then say "what if" ... then he'd go a step further with another "what if" ... and then the creativity was rolling, and another "what if".

    Go for it ... and create your own!

    I can't remember if it was on here or another tute, but the 4 patch was taken and cut diagonally an inch or 2 down - both directions. Looked really complicated but was so easy. Could that be what you mean?

    oh found it.....

    Hi Neighbor! I haven't done this version of the disappearing four patch but I did a simpler version using two different Batik fabrics it came out really well. At least it will when I get it quilted. I made it as a wall hanging.
