Drumroll: Here is my Echoing Churn Dash!!!!
As a quilt appraiser, I spend a lot of time studying quilt history and collecting antique quilts. I love to share my collection in quilt history trunk shows, quilt study classes and more. If you are looking for an entertaining and informative speaker/teacher for your quilt show, retreat, etc. please feel free to contact. I have an extensive antique quilt collection and would love to share them with you.
I also really enjoy giving old quilts "New Life" by remaking antique quilts both as close reproductions and modern makeovers. Echoing Churn Dash is one of my modernized blocks.
I was inspired by this funky churn dash/monkey wrench quilt in my collection. This quilt maker clearly sewed to the beat of her own machine.

Here is another inspiring antique quilt - Amish Churn Dash- circa 1920 that would be right at home at any modern quilt show.
