I am absolutely in love with this fabric line, which is why I've held onto it since May. I know all of you quilters know what I'm talking about. I don't think I'm the only one that has special fabric that just can't be cut until you find the absolute perfect project...am I? Well, it dawned on me that as much as I love modern quilts, this fabric needed something a little more traditional to show it off.
The churn dash pattern is exactly what I had in mind, even if it did mean 320 HST's. Nope, that's not a typo y'all. 320 HST's for 80 blocks. This quilt is 72x90. I don't know what has come over me lately with these huge quilts, but I'm ready for a smaller project.
For the backing and binding, I found these awesome Denyse Schmidt fabrics at Joann's and they look like they could be coordinating prints in this line. I was on the lookout for a great shade of orange, and I love it when a plan comes together. The colors are great, and the fabric almost has a gingham look, so it fits with the retro style as well! And of course I used lots of the scraps to give the backing a little extra happiness.
Here's a close up of the fabric detail, along with the label. And you know me, if there's a polkadot to be found, I will use it. So, I snatched that binding fabric right up!
