Nested Churn Dash Quilt Along


You may know Jane Davidson of QuiltJane from Australia. I love the name of her blog, Want It, Need It, Quilt.
She is starting a quilt-a-long of the Nested Churn Dash. This is big fun quilt block that has taken on a life of it's own. Starting June 1st, 2014, Jane will be taking us through the steps to make a 24" x 24" nested churn dash block.

She has invited 10 of her favourite quilters who couldn't pass up the opportunity to "Quilt Along with Jane."
For the more adventurous, you can continue on and using the 24" x 24" finished block you can make a pillow or mini quilt or make a quilt, ranging in size from 28" x 80" (1 x 3 block bed runner), 54" x 54" (2 x 2 block setting), 80" x 80" (3 x 3  block setting) and 106" x 106" (4 x 4 block setting).

  1. Tried to purchase pattern from her site and it kept taking me back to requesting my email address because it was wrong...so I typed it 3-4 times and still couldn't get through. Would like to join in but road "blocks" in the way. Laura

  3. Interesting quilt block - does not look easy, but I love it. Reminds me of those Russian Dolls that you open up the large one and another one is inside of that one, etc. Looking forward to seeing what you all do - maybe I'll get the confidence to try one! Love your blog!
