December Challenge - Celebrations - Island Batik Ambassador- Double Churn Dash

In honor of the many holiday celebrations that occur in December, this month's Island Batik Challenge is Celebrations. We could do any holiday from New Year's, Easter, Diwali, Channukah, etc.

I do love Christmas and the traditional red and green color scheme along with the classic Churn Dash quilt block. If you've been following me at all, you know I really like recreating and giving new life to old blocks and I really enjoy using batiks to give a modern look to traditional blocks. Churn Dash is one of my favorites and I really like my variation of the Double Churn :)
