LHQSQ - Block #26

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))


Note - these instructions are written in LEFTISH.
If you are right-handed - just reverse the directions.

Another 6” sampler block -

That you can make using -

2-1/2” squares -

HST that FINISH at 2” -

and Strips - cut 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" -

Three across and three down -

Variations of the basic NINE-PATCH -

The sewn block will MEASURE 6-1/2” -

And FINISH at 6” -


#26 - Churn Dash

This is one of those blocks with a bunch of different names -
I have always known it as “Churn Dash” -
But EQ7 calls it a “Double Monkey Wrench” -

Unless the darker sections are Blue -
Then EQ7 calls it a “Greek Square” - ;))

1 light square
4 dark/light HST
4 dark strips - 1-1/2” x 2-1/2”
4 light strips - 1-1/2” x 2-1/2”

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. lol @ EQ's indecisiveness. Churn Dash is a fave. Sits between log cabins and snowballs. Love the contrast in your fabrics.

  2. and Greek Cross is really a 5 x 5 grid--the triangles are much bigger (2 divisions, 1 division and 2 divisions) or at least one version of it is, LOL.

    I have one in my mockup for FWS 5th block over from left top row.

    1. Greek Cross is coming up tomorrow as LHQSQ - Block #27 - at least my version - as a 9-patch - ;))

  3. no actually you are correct, LOL---I was thinking of Greek Cross!! slightly different but similar. Sorry!

  4. I'm glad I have a left-handed husband so I could understand the LEFTISH :)

    Churn Dash is a favorite of mine. Love yours!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
