The Final Churn Dash Quilts #25 and #26

 Here they are...the last two Churn Dash quilts of 2023!

I really like this charming layout.  It is made from just the smaller 6" churn dash blocks and some 4 patches.  This is another kit sent in from Gail.  All I had to do was quilt it - she made the top and included the backing and binding.

I am really impressed with the depth of her fabric/scrap collection.

Another great wide backing on this quilt. 
Quilt #25 measures 66 x 78.

So let's finish off this drive with a spectacular layout design.  Quilt #26 is made with these framed little churn dash blocks.  Aren't they adorable?  This one is another kit sent in by Gail.

I found the way she framed them really clever.  She used 6 fabrics to frame each block.  It is a great way to use up the tiniest of scraps!

This quilt measures 64 x 72.

One of my favorite wide fabrics from Connecting Threads is on the back of this one. (They have three different colorways.)

I never would have thought I would be quilting up 26 Churn Dash quilts for this block drive.  
That is amazing....

Blocks have started arriving for the new block drive and I have already put together a couple quilt tops.  I hope to start sharing those soon.  
It will be fun to see how many quilts we will end up with for that one!

I am hoping to have all the statistics on the Churn Dash block drive posted up next week!

Wow! Gail does get a lot done! The last 4 churn dash quilts are really cool. She has some great ideas for scrappy settings. Congrats on finishing off the last 4. That has to fee good.

Twenty-six churn dash quilts is definitely amazing! I think Gail must have a great stash of red, white, and blue prints - she's come up with some beautiful tops. I know these are really going to appreciated by their recipients!
