BOW #10 Churn Dash Frame
The piecing of the frame is the same as for the Churn Dash in last week's BOW, but use these sizes for the pieces in a 12" finished block:
(1) 6-1/2" square or block
(4) 3-1/2" Half Square Triangle units (light/dark)
(4) light 2" x 6-1/2" rectangles
(4) dark 2" x 6-1/2" rectangles
The table runner at the top of the post is made from 3 Churn Dash frame blocks, set on point, and with 3 different 6" blocks in the center. It makes the block more interesting--something more to look at.
Below is a Block of the Month recently finished at Kanesville Quilting. "Dots and Dashes" uses many Churn Dash (the "Dashes") frame blocks, each with a different block in he center.
Just think of the possibilities!
