Pezzy Churn Dash Quilt from Random Thoughts...


The multi talented Diane from Random thoughts...do or "di" made this "Pezzy Chrun Dash" quilt. How cute is this picnic quilt? I love the random solid blocks in the quilt. I am always to scared to do something like this, but I love seeing it, maybe I will try. Diane loves quilting, gardening, traveling, photography, cooking etc. My kind of gal. Be sure to check out her blog...


I have finished the Pezzy Churn Dash Quilt.
My fourth finish for the year!


I already admitted that I blatantly copied a few other talented ladies here.


This quilt was made with a Layer Cake of Pezzy Prints and White Kona Cotton.
I also added a few coordinating solids
to add to the fun of this quilt.
To say it was easy is an understatement.
To me, this quilt really packs a huge punch for the amount of work that went into it.


Using a walking foot,
I quilted it with straight lines on both sides 
of each vertical and horizontal seam
of each square.


I have a baby shower to go to this weekend.
They already have a little girl and don't know if they are having 
a boy or a girl this time.
Every family needs a picnic quilt.
So that's what they are getting from me.
Any excuse to give someone I love one of my quilts
gives me great pleasure.



Backed with grey gingham and bound with orange polka dots.
This quilt just makes me happy.

I really enjoyed making this quilt.
I have a Layer Cake of Mama Said Sew.
Maybe there is another Churn Dash Quilt in my future.

LOVE it! I so need to make some churn dash blocks, and I happen to have some layer cakes (including some pezzies).

Cindy said...

Love this quilt Di!

Nita said...

I like how you used a colour background in some of the blocks. Adds a lot of visual interest. And I have always said that some of the most beautiful things are the simplest.

I love this quilt of Di's; actually I love all Di's quilts!

abengel said...

@Jo C, you could make this with charm packs instead of a layer cake. Four charm packs equals a layer cake, so if you have four you could make this quilt. All the churn dash pieces can be cut from charm pack squares. :)
