HST Sampler Quilt | Block #7: Churn Dash (variation)


Welcome to week four (!!!) in my HST Sampler Quilt Along series! This week we’re starting a little later than usual thanks to the few days I had off to recover from my dental work on Monday.

So block no.7 in the series is a fun little variation of the Churn Dash block! The only thing that’s different with our block compared to that of the original is that the rectangle elements in each row have been replaced with squares. Thus resulting on our block looking more like a doughnut than a wrench-type looking thing.

Just like a few of the other blocks we’ve made so far, this one is pieced together as a simple 9-patch block. (Our very last one in this series! The last two blocks after this are both 16-patch!)

As always you’ll be able to find all of the measurement and cutting details, along with the fabrics* I’ve used to piece this block together as well as a diagram of the block layout, in the pattern sheet linked at the top of this post. If you would like to use the same 12.5″ set square as me, you can find it here:June Tailor Get-Squared 12.5″ Ruler.


Thank you to everyone who wished me luck and sent me get well soon messages concerning my dental appointment on Monday! You guys are so sweet and so lovely to me! 🙂

As I mentioned in the video, block eight (Open Window) will be out in the next few days (I’ve penciled in for Sunday to be my deadline!) as I’m running a few days behind schedule due to Mondays adventures!

The variation of the Open Window block we’ll be making is somewhat different to the one I’ve shown before – this one involves more colours and a slightly different layout that could get confusing when piecing together our HSTs. But all will be revealed very soon!

Happy Sewing, Friends!
