Churn Dash County Quilt / Pattern & Kit option

Write a Review

The Barn Quilt Tour of Adams County, Ohio is a real thing and the inspiration behind our newest collection of Barn Raising Quilt patterns.   On a recent drive through Ohio, I couldn't help but notice colorful quilt squares painted on the side of weathered & chippy painted barns.   With many miles ahead of me, I began to investigate these beautiful works of art.    This is what I learned.

{ In Adams County, 20th Century ‘Mail Pouch’ ads adorning Ohio barns are being snuffed out by a 21st Century phenomenon – Barn Quilt Squares. The painted Barn Quilt Squares began when Donna Sue Groves wanted to create something to honor her mother’s passion, quilting, and did so with a large painting on the side of their barn. This sparked a movement that has swept Adams County. Adding to the serenity and charm of a lazy rural drive amidst the foothills of Appalachia, the “clothesline” of quilts highlights the adventure with its colorful display of unique artistry dotting the countryside. }

Inspired, I began to cut up fat quarters to replicate these massive works of art.   Yes, they're quick, easy and not much to them.  But as I shared with one customer, sometimes you just need to color with jumbo crayons.   

Churn Dash County is the forth in our pattern series.   It takes just 4) 1/2 yard prints for the churn dash and background fabric + 1 FQ and a yard of border fabric.  Because you use just one half of the churn dash and background fabrics, simply add another FQ and border fabric to make a second quilt, reversing the churn dash.   

The pattern is available right here as a digital download.    Order the kit and we'll include a complimentary print version. 

Our quilt is shown in masculine grey and mustard with a floral center, but we can create a kit however you'd like.  Simply let us know your color choice at checkout.   

We hope you'll join our ongoing barn raising tour.
