Virtual Design Wall 9/22/14: Churn Dash Variations

I've been doing a lot of sewing lately but not much I can blog about now. Also a lot of bonding with my seam ripper. Rippit, rippit... How boring.

I have not been doing any pattern writing lately, and I kind of miss it.

So, I've been playing in EQ and I've come up with some churn dash variations. Here's what's on my virtual design wall today.  Let me know which one you like best and I'll write a tutorial when I get a chance, and post it here on the blog.
Plus Dash Dark

Plus Dash Combo
Chain Dash Plus

Chain Dash

All of these quilts use 14" blocks and finish at about 70 x 86" as shown. Which one do you like best? Why? Please tell me in the comments. Also let me know if you want baby or queen size variations. Thanks!

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times - check out all the real (not virtual) quilty inspiration on everyone's design walls over there.


  1. I'm a sucker for both churn dash and chains, so guess which one I picked. The last one!

  2. I think they're all great, it's hard to pick a favorite!

  3. I like #1. I'm all about a graphic quilt.

  4. I like the chain effect in the last one. Fun to play with design huh? :)

  5. I like the bottom two because they form circles as a secondary design (optical illusion technically!). I LOVE nine patches though so if I had to pick only one, it would be the last one! Can't wait to see which one you pick for the tutorial.

  6. I like the first one!. Not too busy. I am making a peach and light gray churn dash for a baby.
