I found some lovely fabric in my stash, that for some reason I had not used yet; “Mugungalyi” -Circle by Nutex 100% cotton www.nutex.co.nz – great quality with a lovely feel and thickness. And black and white, what could be better to use with bright scraps?
A simple churn dash block I thought would show off the fabric nicely. I had just enough fabric to make 12 blocks with enough left over to make some narrow sashing to avoid dealing with seams butting.
But what layout?
Any thoughts appreciated, I’ve still not decided, though I’m leaning towards the second one.

I love Churn Dash blocks! They were the perfect choice for your fabrics, bright and bold. I like layout 1 or 4. You could rearrange the blocks in 50 different layouts and still not make up your mind!
I prefer 4 – for what it’s worth! The yellow / orange blocks are very strong so I’d try to separate them, as in number 4.
The fabric is great and I love your blocks. It’s going to make a great quilt.
I’m for 4. Although, you know any would be wonderful. What size are the individual blocks?
Love your churn blocks. I’ve been wanting to do a churn quilt and now you have inspired me. Thanks!
I love churn dash quilts. The fabric is gorgeous . I prefer layout 4
Love your bright churn dash blocks! I vote for layout 2, greens/yellows alternate rows with blue/red/purple. That’s the ‘making sense of it’ part of me speaking!
The 4th one looks wonderful – the gold/yellow blocks are interspersed nicely throughout the quilt top where they are in rows or grouped in the other versions. Beautiful – that will be a gorgeous small quilt!
My initial favourite was number 2, but then most of the rest of them grew on me too. The only I wouldn’t be happy with is number 3. This is a fun little project, thanks for sharing on Colour & Inspiration Tuesday.
