Churn in the 2018 Quilter's Planner

I am excited to have a quilt in the 2018 Quilter's Planner (affiliate link). Meet Churn 😊

Kitty of The Night Quilter, has done all the photography for the Planner again this year and her photography is just so beautiful. I love this close up shot.

Churn came about when I challenged myself to use a traditional block in a non-traditional setting. Once I had the small churn dash blocks in the design, I added the bold grey to kind of echo the shape of the churn dash and I loved the simplicity of it. I didn't want all that negative space to be boring, though, so I used low-volume patchwork to fill it up. The result is a design that comes together quickly, but has plenty of interest.

I left the teal churn dashes unquilted other than stitch-in-the-ditch and a spiral in their middles. The grey is quilted with dense matchstick quilting in Aurifil 1158 and the background is quilted in an echoed loop design in Aurifil 2600 (which really does work with any colour!).

All 13 of the projects in the 2018 Quilter's Planner (affiliate link) will be in a full colour companion magazine this year. There's also a gorgeous sampler quilt pattern, designed by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. Pre-orders for the Planner are available now, so be sure to get your copy (affiliate link). International orders can be placed through the Fat Quarter Shop.

  1. I really love the bold charcoal echoes and how the LV background has variation and texture to it, Leanne. Beautiful!
