A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Churn Dash

  Churn Dash Block

I can’t believe until now

I hadn’t given this adorable block a thought!

Today we’ll make this cutie.


Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!

Today I found an orange!

Love Thimbleberries oranges!!!

I don’t have a lot of them.



  • 2 cream sq’s. 2″
  • 1 cream sq. 1  1/2″
  • 1 cream strip 1″ x 6  1/2″
  • 2 orange sq’s. 2″
  • 1 orange strip 1″ x 6  1/2″

I didn’t use Thangles this time, just made the hst’s from squares.

Use your favorite method.

I pressed these seams open.

Trim the hst’s to 1  1/2″.

Sew the cream 1″ x 6  1/2″ strip to the orange 1″ x 6  1/2″ strip.

I pressed this seam open.

Cut 4 segments 1  1/2″.

Arrange pieces then sew together.

I pressed the last 2 seams open…

Isn’t it adorable???

This one is like Lay’s Potato Chips.

No one can make just 1!

I had fun playing with the color placement in the blocks.

I hope you have fun with this one too!
