Quilt Concert: First Notes Block 2

June 25, 2021

Let’s kick off week three of the Quilt Concert Quilt Along with Block 2: Elongated Churn Dash!

Week 2 Instructions

This week’s block is an original design based on an old favorite- the Churn Dash!

The block layout that comprises the block we know best as a Churn Dash has lots of names, and the color placement in the Elongated Churn Dash Block is actually a bit closer to the Greek Cross Block. Check out blocks 1646a-d in Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns for more information.

Sponsor and Prize of the Week

We are thrilled to have two fantastic sponsors this week: one for US residents another for our international participants!

First up is Red Rooster, a quilt shop located in Dublin, Ohio. The nearly 4,000 bolts of fabric include wide variety of styles in the latest lines. You’ll also want to check out their books, patterns, notions, gifts, and class offerings. Red Rooster is currently featured in the Spring/Summer 2021 Issue of Quilt Sampler Magazine.

The first international (for residents outside of the US) prize of the quilt along is from Kid Giddy. She is providing a PDF Pattern of her super awesome Sew Plush Planner Organizer! Check out all of her awesome patterns in her Etsy Shop!
