    Where did you get the "songbird fruit" fabric. Your quilt is just beautiful.

    A real 'churn dash' is the center dasher that makes an old fashioned butter churn work. The piece is shaped similar. Grandma showed me the butter churn she used as a child.
    Very good.. yep.. the dash is the "post" and attached parts on the inside of of a butter churn. I can remember playing at helping my grandmother churn butter. Although she more often used the table top one that was a large glass "Jar" with paddles inside that were turned with a handle and gears outside.. kind of a precursor to today's mixer.

Wish I could take all of the creative credit.. but I must admit that one of the Drs I work with is a quilter who works at the hospital weekends. A couple of weeks ago she came in to work.. saw me and said "I have something for you".. ran out and came in with a bag of quilt blocks.. (it was so funny as we work in the operating room). Don't worry it was a lull in the activity.. everyone looked stunned..lol.. she said I'll pay you XX dollars if you can get these done for me this weekend. Well.. of course I did it.. and the blocks were similar to these..I loved the birds so much I wanted to find something similar to do and when I went to Wal Mart the next day... ta da!!! There was the same fabric.. which I snatched up.. but thanks for thinking I'm that smart. Honestly you can dress up MANY blocks with a bit of fussy cutting. And this fabric is great as the way the birds are printed there is almost NO waste!! very unusual with fussy cutting.
    Here's the information on the fabric again.

    Have you ever tried "Picaso 3" for your photos??
    It is the greatest photo editor I have ever seen, turns those blue/purples back to purple, just by clicking one
    block. You can crop, email from site, burn CD's from site,
    make photo albums, just anything. I think it is fantastic and it is free to download just go to www.picaso3.com
    I think you will love it too!

    Tippy, thank you so much for this tutorial. I will definitely be trying this. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
    P.S. I've bookmarked the page to find it --- soon! I'm planning on making a baby quilt for a baby boy due the first week of January.
    Thanks again

    Love it! I want to make a baby girl quilt with some fussy cut centers. This has really been a huge help! Does anyone have any idea about how much fabric it might take?

    Thanks so much for the tutorial, Tippy! The churn dash pattern was a favorite of my mom's. The birds as the center fussy cut are beautiful but the possibilities are endless. I will be looking at large scale prints in a whole new way. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    It depends on the size of the blocks you're making.. which, I suppose depends on the size of the design you fussy cut. I'd find the "fussy" fabric first and see what size block it lends itself to to determine that. Mine was perfect for the 4" center square (finished) so a 12" block (finished) was the perfect size. If your design is only good for a 3" finished square you'd shoot for a 9" block.
