Churndash Court in Kiss Dots July 08 2014, 1 Comment
I officially declare this Michael Miller week here on the Sass blog. We have four projects made up in Michael Miller fabrics to share with you and we are kicking it off with this Churndash Court. We made this version of our Churndash Court pattern with assorted Kiss Dots. I love how this one turned out! It glows! The quilt finishes 36" x 36"; the perfect size for a wall-hanging or baby quilt.
This was a "planned scrappy" quilt. We used 18 different Kiss Dots in rainbow order in each corner of the churndash to create the gradient effect. The two corners opposite of one another are identical. Two corners go gradate from purple to blue and two corners gradate from lime to yellow. We used put a grey and white houndstooth for the churndash. It is a little bit blendier than our other rainbow Churndash Court.
My Mom, the talent behind Wolf Creek Quilting, quilted horizontal and vertical lines at random widths apart, across the entire quilt. The lines range from 1/4" to an 1" apart. It is heavily quilted and has an awesome texture.
We had a few extra strips left over from the front, so I pieced them together to make a scrappy label. I used the same Quilt Label technique as before, this just looks a little fancier with the turquoise, pink and yellow dots pieced together. We used an adorable bright elephant print for the backing.
We made the binding with the grey and white houndstooth with a splash of solid white. We arranged the binding so the solid white is in one corner. It gives the binding a little bit of interest!
