Marsala Chubby Churn Dash Mini

**Edited Apr 24/15 to change out the photos:

"Marsala Chubby Churn Dash Mini"

Pattern by Fig Tree & Co
Size:  23.75" x 23.75"

I'm going to start off by apologizing for the photos as it's been cloudy here all day and I'm always afraid of technical issues to leave trying to post to the last minute to wait until tomorrow to hope for better ones.  I may be able to replace them at a later date :)

This quilt is my entry for the 2015 Pantone Quilt Challenge.  You'll be able to see all the entries at either:

Most of the fabrics were from my stash, including the sashing and binding fabric which is Floragraphix II by Jason Yenter.  
The background and backing is Robert Kaufman's Quilter's Linen in gray, one of my favourite fabrics to use as a background.  I used both the right side of the batik in some of the churn dashes (with the gold flecks) and some with the wrong side of the batik as well, in order to have more Marsala fabrics.

I did stitching in the ditch and straight-line quilting in a symmetrical but unevenly spaced design so that some cross-hatching was formed.  All quilting was done in Aurifil 2600, 50wt., and I used Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.

The binding was attached by machine and hand-stitched to the back.

Happy Quilting!



  1. I adore your happy chubby churn dashes! What a great use of marsala. :) The pop of green in the sashing and binding fabric is a really fun bit of interest as well. The grey is a great background and really lets the marsala sing. Beautiful work!

    1. Thanks Anne. I had a good time with these fabrics, even the fussy cutting went smoothly.
