The Hodge Podge returns…

Just before I went off-line for a couple of weeks, I had started to make my own sampler, using vintage quilt blocks from 100+ years ago.  I am loving how these blocks are coming together and decided to keep going with this project, so here is block number 4…. the Churn Dash…

This block is also referred to as The Wrench in some quilt books.  This six inch block was pretty easy to paper piece and as with all my Hodge Podge blocks you can find the free paper piecing pattern here….churn dash pattern.

You can also use this pattern to make a Greek Cross block….

There are many more Hodge Podges to come… I may not have been able to sew in the last couple of weeks but I could wield a mouse and design some blocks!
