    Easter Churn dash with a stack n whack twist

    I came across two strips of a cute easter print I had used as backing for a quilt several years back. The strips were about 13" wide and 72" long with 5 repeats in each. I made 16 four patch blocks which I used as the center of the churn dash blocks. The other strip was used in the upper and lower borders to show the original print. All of the fabrics came from my stash, and I completely used up 5 pieces of fabric. Woo hoo! Now I hope to have time to quilt it before Easter. Please excuse the awful phone pics.

    That is very clever bring a new technique to the center of an old block design.

    Beautiful easter colors. Looks very Springy. I have made quilt after quilt over the past 5 years and have actually used up many large yardage fabrics. I have many, many more to go.

    Clever how you did this, thanks for sharing.
    I have 8 strips of about 6 inches wide that was left over from one of my stack and whack project, think I'll use this idea to use up those strips.

    This is SO pretty!! Bright, and fresh, and unique!! Plus, you used up stash instead of spending $$. Sounds like a winner, all the way around!! Good job!
