Wildest Churn Dash Ever
Okay, I think you are ready for this one. It is not for the faint of heart.
I found it in Texas a few years ago. It is a top that is very rumpled.
It's truly a thrift shop quilt. The fabrics are definitely from clothing or sewing leftovers. The blocks are traditional 12" churn dash blocks. It is hand pieced and measures 56" x 72". The sashing is the fun part, of varying pieced strings.
I like to think it was comforting handwork, pieced on someone's lap. Someone who wasn't paying REAL close attention, but who was enjoying their sewing!
