Liberated Churn Dash Placemats by Sarah Vanderburgh of

It's ready! Finally!

So proud to show you how easy it can be to make some liberated churn dashes.

These placemats whip up really quickly.It's a different method than the one I used in my quilt.

I wanted to make the placemats match but still be different so I used the same fabric in all of the churns to make the *dashes*.

I also kept the background fabric the same - I used one of Pat Sloan's off white neutrals from The Sweet Life. You'll notice in this churn that most of its points are still intact - it's easy to keep the traditional look of these blocks alive while still playing with the construction technique.

I also did just simple quilting in these first two - then I decided to play with that too:)

I haven't done much modern quilting and it shows in this placemat! I started with one idea and then added a second. It's not my favorite look, but it's only on a placemat that will most of the time be covered up with dishes so it's all good :)

This one I'm happier with! I tried curved quilting. Of course I didn't mark it out but I might next time. I actually bought a course on machine quilting that I need to make some time to watch ;)

This pattern will make 4 placemats measuring approximately 14 x 16 inches. 

It's available now in my online shop - click here.

You just might have enough time to make a set for your Thanksgiving table {Canadians!}

With Joy,
