Scrap Buster Every Little Bit Churndash Quilt

Even Use Fabric Bits You Might Have Thrown Away.

Make yourself this sweet scrappy quilt using every bit of fabric, no matter how small. All of the fabric pieces for the Churn Dash blocks can be made from strips or squares that measure less than 2 inches. If you have lots of scraps, and the Churn Dash is one of your favorites, use Pam Buda’s technique using the smallest bits.


Sort fabric scraps by color to make picking and choosing the fabrics for each paper pieced segment much faster and easier.  The straight sides of the block are paper pieced, and sewing them using Pams template is easy because it’s nothing but straight strips. I love how you can even jump a line in the paper piecing to show more of a favorite piece in the print!

They stitch up fast using up so many scraps, that you may have to wait for more, or use some favorites from your stash. Make as many blocks as you like and use them for any Churn Dash project.
