I swapped positive/negative six inch churn dash blocks in civil war reproduction fabrics last year with the Block_Swappers Yahoo Group.
And then later in the year I swapped light and dark 2.5 inch civil war reproduction fabric strips with Quiltville Swap Yahoo Group.
So, I sewed them into churn dashes.
And now I have 120 churn dash blocks - 60 light on dark and 60 dark on light.
This month I want to get them sewn into a quilt top.
That's my April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
My 5 year old grandson wanted to know what to call that shape. So I told him about making butter, butter churns,and churn dashes. We inspected my old butter churn and he discovered it has a different kind of dash.
