Say hello to Country Churn.
Country Churn quilt pattern was my very first published pattern. It’s made up of my top two favorite blocks. Sawtooth stars and churn dash blocks. Who knew combining the two would be such a beautiful combination.
This churn dash quilt pattern is written up for three different sizes depending on your needs. It can be a baby, throw, or full size quilt.
Country Churn is also stash friendly. There is an option to make it scrappier using fat quarters (like this version here) or you can use yardage like I did in this quilt shown below.
When I saw this Dear Stella Designs Country Mouse fabric on the shelves at Kay Marie Quilt Co. I knew it would be perfect for this quilt pattern! The fabric really was the inspiration for this quilt. Dear Stella Designs fabric is silky soft and gives off fall country vibes.
Country Churn Quilt Pattern
What I love about this Country Churn quilt pattern is if you pick your fabrics just right, the cornerstones create a dynamic sashing that really accents your churn dash blocks. The large churn dash centers allow you to show off your main prints. Isn’t that Country Mouse Floral just gorgeous?
My good friend @Kellyannquilts did the custom quilting for me. My wallet might hate me for it but I usually prefer to send my quilts off to the longarmer for finishing. Especially anything over 60″. Kelly can finish a quilt much faster then I can and her quilting always brings out the best in my quilt tops.
QUILT BACKING FABRIC
For this quilt I used Kona Cottons solid navy yardage for my backing. I just love how it shows off the quilting. Sometimes simple can be stunning! She does amazing work!
I used what I had left in the Country Mouse floral to bind this quilt. Don’t you love the little pop of color it gives to the backing?!
I bound this one using my Janome Memory Craft 6650 sewing machine. The binding is stitched onto the back and then folded it over to stitch it down on the front.
I’ve tried binding in many different ways. This way, folding to the front is great for a beginning quilter, but in the end once I learned how to hand bind my quilts, I’m not sure I’ll ever got back to machine binding.
This gorgeous quilt is a modern take on the classic churn dash quilt patterns. It’s beginner friendly and goes together quickly. Country Churn is written for three different sizes and is fat quarter or yardage friendly.
You can find this Country Churn quilt pattern in my Pattern Shop.
