Liberated Churn Dash Quilt Pattern ~ A Giveaway

Wonky Churn Dash

Remember this little guy? One of my favorite quilt blocks from my liberated sampler was the wonky churn dash. In my original post, I linked to a tutorial by Sarah at Sew Joy Creations, so you could make your very own liberated churn dash block.

Sarah has since developed a fantastic quilt pattern using these liberated churn dash blocks! Her pattern is 22 pages, full of color photos and very detailed. And the best part is, Sarah has offered to give away a copy of the pattern to one of you. All you need to do is leave a comment! What fabrics would you use for your Liberated Churn Dash quilt? I will pick a winner Thursday, July 19th in the evening. Good luck everyone!

++ Closing comments to pick a winner! ++

The winner is #61, Jen B! Jen said “I think I would piece together charms from swaps to “make” some fabric. Maybe my neutrals with a turquoise background.”

Congratulations Jen! I will be in contact!
