1. a square template measuring 3in. by 3in.
2. a rectangular template measuring 1 1/2in. by 3in.
3. a triangular template made by cutting a 3in. square template diagonally in half.
Place templates on the back of your chosen fabrics. Outline templates and cut out adding a 1/4in. seam allowance all around.
Cut 1 piece using the 3in. square template. (this can be the background fabric or whatever you like)
Cut 4 pieces using the 1 1/2in. by 3in. template of your churndash fabric.
Cut 4 pieces using the 1 1/2in. by 3in. template of the background fabric
Cut 4 pieces using the triangle template of your churndash fabric.
Cut 4 pieces using the triangle template of the background fabric.
Layout the pieces as in the block below. Notice that I used a pink for the centre. That was purely for balance of colour in my wall hanging. The original Churndash pattern is done in two colours.
Sew your pieces together.
I have enclosed a suggested layout of four blocks that we have already made. The finished quilt will be 3 blocks by 3 blocks. All blocks are 9in. when finished. (9 1/2in. before sewing together)
Notice the thin blue fabric at the top of the house block. I had to add that to make my house block measure 9in. by 9in. For some reason I had cut it too short.
