My Favorite Block Quilt Along BONUS–A Churn Dash Owl

A Churn Dash Owl?  What in the world am I talking about?  I promised at the beginning of this Quilt Along that I would show you different ways to make your 6.5” blocks more fun or more interesting.

Well…I’m about to show you how I blended I’m A Ginger Monkey’s favorite block the Churn Dash with Bea Quilter’s Owl Block.

**You could add the churn dash using my revised dimensions given below to any 6.5” block you make for this Quilt Along to add more intrigue to it and make it a new 12.5” block.



To create this block take

1 – 6.5” Owl Block that you made earlier (or any 6.5” block for that matter…you could even do a churn dash in a churn dash….)


Fabric A (grey): 2 – 4” squares, 4 – 6.5” x 2” rectangles

Fabric B (orange): 2 – 4” squares, 4 – 6.5” x 2” rectangles


Follow along with ‘I’m a Ginger Monkey’s Tutorial except use the 6.5 owl block (or any 6.5” block you’ve made) as the center and use the dimensions for the outer pieces that I’ve given you here.  You’ll trip your HST down to 3.5” squares.


Because of the fusible on the owl makes it thicker, I ironed towards the rectangular strips – less bulky.


And voila!  You have a fun Churn Dash Owl block!


And here’s my churn dash owl next to the 12.5” churn dash I made!


  1. Love this block, definitely adds a little humor to the block.
