Block 4: Churn Dash- Threadology Quilt Along

Today I get to share Block 4 of the Fat Quarter Shop Threadology Quilt Along! I love classic blocks and the churn dash block is one of my favorites! (Shhh don’t tell the others!) You can find the free pattern here or the YouTube tutorial here.

Are you quilting along? I am using the Threadology quilt kit that is full of the cutest Little Snippets fabric by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. These cute quilt kits are all sold out, but the Fat Quarter Shop has all of the Little Snippets fabric you need to make this quilt!

Little Snippets fabric all cut out ready to make some half square triangles.
Ready for some half square triangles!

The churn dash block is one of my favorites. I like to assemble my half square triangles first. I love this Aurifil thread to piece with.

Trimming my half square triangles

My favorite tip is for trimming half square triangles. I made my own Half Square Triangle ruler with an Olfa ruler and a few layers of washi tape. After I assemble the half square triangles, I press them towards the dark side. Then I trim them down. The washi tape rests against the diagonal seam and helps to trim these up nice and square. I also use a rotating mat when trimming. So I just rotate the mat as I trim them up! How do you assemble your half square triangles?

Block 4- Churn Dash

I love this block! It is seriously one of my favorites! And I just love that measuring tape print! I need to get it in ALL the colors!

The Fat Quarter Shop is asking for a $5 donation to Make a Wish Central and South Texas for this quilt along. We have almost reached our goal of $20,000! So awesome!
