One of my goals this year is to offer more tutorials here. I've called this one Scrappy 9 churn dash - enjoy!
Sew strips of the colour of your choice together end to end to make 4 strips 8 1/2" long.
Repeat with the background strips to make 4 background strips 8 1/2" long.
Sew together in pairs one background strip and one colour of your choice strip to make 4 sets.
Press the seam to the colour of your choice strip (in this case, red.)
ASSEMBLE THE CHURN DASH BLOCK
Sew one churn dash side set to the left side of the bordered 9 patch unit; press the seam to the churn dash set.
Sew one churn dash side set to the right side of the bordered 9 patch unit; press the seam to the churn dash set.
Sew one hst to each end of the remaining two churn dash sets with the colour of your choice side of the unit facing in (the background to the outside of each end.) Press the seam to the set.
Sew one of the sets with hsts to the top and one to the bottom of the block. Press the seams to the added units.
The completed block should measure 12 1/2" square.
