Giant Churn Dash Crib Quilt

Last November I pieced a giant churn dash crib quilt to demonstrate spiral quilting at a guild meeting. That meeting was Monday evening. It was a short demonstration but the members learned how to get started. I've finished the quilting, added the binding and now I have a  finish. 

He measures 48" by 54", a nice sized crib quilt.


The white fabric has small pink dots. I was rather disappointed that the fabric was rather blah. I added a flange binding and the aqua fabric added some zing to the outside edge and woke up the dots! 


I sewed leftover fabric together to make the backing.

Now I can go check this project off the list.

  1. Nice job! I love how modern the traditional churn block feels in an oversize scale, with the spiral quilting!

  2. That is so neat - maybe later in the year I can try it on a lap quilt! You are really perfecting this technique!

  3. Beautiful quilting and I think that a tiny newborn would fit right in the middle of the churn dash before he or she grew a bit ! :)

  5. I really like that with the off-center spiral quilting! It's pretty amazing how much something as small as an added flange can perk things up, isn't it?

  7. I like pieced backs. Adds interest and saves having to purchase fabric specifically for the backing (if you have enough left over.

  12. Hello Gretchen,
    This is a beautiful quilt. I love the contrast between the straight lines of the piecing and the curves of the quilting. And I have a weakness for tiny spots, too.
    Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks!
    Love, Muv
