Churn-Dash-by-Christa-WatsonDid you know? The Churn Dash block’s name is a clue to its long history. The term comes from the design’s resemblance to the staff or pole (referred to as the dash) that’s used in a traditional wooden butter churn. While Churn Dash is the most common name for this block, you might also hear it called a Monkey Wrench, Double Wrench, Hole in the Barn Door, or Lincoln’s Platform, among others. As is the case with many traditional blocks, different names for the same basic design tend to pop up over time, depending on the era or region.

    —Rosann on December 9, 2016
  • This one has been my favorite for several years. I’ve made different sizes in the same quilt, drafting them to get them to fit a pre-determined perimeter. I’ve put littles in the center, solid churn dashes in mixed backgrounds, done in ’30’s, batiks, vintage and in local college colors. I have a binder with pictures of churn dash quilts that I want to make. If you don’t call me that I’ve won, I’ll go buy a copy!! It’s a must have book!

  • I have made several Churn Dash quilts. My favourite was for a little girl who had just lost her Grandma. The "dash" was a pretty little floral, the "churn" was spring green and white, the narrow first border was a piece of Grandma’s favourite mauve fabric, and the main border was the floral. I love the effect of the block on point, as in Jo Morton’s quilt, and I love having different sizes in a quilt.

    —Carol on December 9, 2016

  • Hi, there. I’ve made a couple of churn dash quilts. I like to give my quilts unusual names, so my most recent one is called, "Don’t Forget the Butter for the Royal Slice of Bread" If you are a fan of a.a.milne’s poem, "The King’s Breakfast",you’ll get the reference. The label is in the shape of a slice of bread.

    Gail G on December 9, 2016

    —Elaine C on December 9, 2016
  • I really like the churn dash block and have used it in quilts several times. I made four inch blocks and joined them together as a border for a quilt with a large log cabin with ladies sitting on the porch around a quilt frame quilting. I felt like the churn dash typifies "old fashioned " quilting and that was my goal in that quilt.

    —Barbara Daniel on December 9, 2016
  • I have made the block in a sampler quilt. I proposed it for the club challenge this year….no takers.

    —Rochelle Summers on December 9, 2016
  • A friend and I are currently doing a churn dash block lottery for our guild. Each month we announce a color theme for members to follow. They make 2 blocks, one for the lottery and one for us to put together in a twin sized quilt to be donated to a local foster house. We have such fun working with these blocks and coming up with interesting ways to set them. I hav already requested that our guild buy this book. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Deanna on December 9, 2016
  • I made a Churn Dash for my very first quilt. I even hand quilted it. That was 41 years ago and I haven’t stopped quilting since. Now, my quilt is very tattered but it has been in constant use since then. I think it is time for a new one !!!

    —Sue Brown on December 9, 2016

  • I have a few quilts with the churn dash block. One of my favorite ones is a mini quilt.

    —Kim Hamilton on December 9, 2016
  • I like the ease of construction of the Churn Dash block. I had nine orphan Churn Dash blocks from the 1990’s (I ran out of fabric because I did not have a plan before I started making blocks). Eventually I alternated the orphan Churn Dash blocks with Snowball blocks to make a lap quilt. It turned out very well. A Churn Dash book with planned quilts and fabric yardage requirements would provide me with a planned path for completed quilts.

    —Camille on December 9, 2016

    —Vivian Lewis on December 9, 2016
  • Churn Dashes has long been my favorite quilt block. I cannot pass up buying either a pattern or a new kit with churn dash blocks. Also books, if I miss anyone of these in a shop or in a vendor’s booth, my friends never fail to point it out to me. This book would be the icing on the cake. I hope I win!

    —Sandy Ruffino on December 9, 2016
  • My most successful quilt is a churn dash pattern. It’s the first one I designed myself, and the scrappy churns are integrated into the quilt. That is, while each block has symmetry, there may be two or three different fabrics in each "churn." It sounds complex and confusing, but it worked, largely because I limited the pallette to pinks and pink-tinted browns.

    Fran Gardner on December 9, 2016
  • I’ve made mini churn dash and large blocks. Love them all

    —Christy Reysen on December 9, 2016

She requested a quilt that was not too fancy, so I raided my stash and made an elongated churn dash block in shades of blue with plain blocks in between. I long-arm quilted it this week and am sewing the binding so I can get it in the mail in time for Xmas. Gotta hurry as it is going to the other side of the country

    What a wonderful story, Kathy – good luck on that binding and happy holidays to you! –Jenny

  • I have three Churn Dash quilts right now. Two are table runners. The third is twin size and has lived on my guest room bed for many years. The idea came from Fons and Porter. Blocks are 3″, 6″, and 9″, arranged randomly on a background fabric with tiny flowers. The colors of the flowers are reflected in the various blocks. I am ready for some new ideas so I can make a double bed quilt to go on the bed inmy retirement home to come. Keeping my fingers crossed for the book. Thanks.

    —Ruth Clapp on December 9, 2016
  • My first quilt, much loved and now gone. I put a different block in the center of each "dash". I didn’t know much back then
    and just stitched in the ditch. Never took a picture but to try and replicate it and quilt it better so it will hold up.

    —Catherine on December 9, 2016
  • Love churn dash blocks! Fun and easy to make! Great scrap bag block too!

    Tara on December 9, 2016

  • This will be the perfect block for a new baby quilt I am about to cut out!

    —Pat on December 9, 2016
  • I love the versatility of the Churn Dash! It was one of the first squares I learned and it turned out to be my ‘go to’ block when I need a quick quilt. Yes, I’ve discovered that an entire quilt of Churn Dash blocks can make a beautiful gift! But, it doesn’t have to stop there! I like using this square with other patterned squares. It just seems to fit in anywhere! If I was to teach my granddaughter to quilt, thus would be one of the first squares I would teach her. It gives experience in cutting, matching corners and sewing. The Churn Dash will never disappear!!

    Barbara Schmidt on December 9, 2016

This quilt was an extra long twin and was used primarily by my husband on his bed at the fire department. It is well worn but still a prize possession.
