Hello and happy Friday friends! Today I’m sharing my Fall Dash quilt–a fun and scrappy fall quilt with churn dash blocks, two styles of pumpkin blocks, and maple leaf blocks. This is the perfect time to start a scrappy fall quilt!
Fall Dash Quilt
I had a lot of fun piecing this quilt which was featured in American Patchwork & Quilting last fall. Previously, the pattern was only available in the magazine, but I now have both paper and PDF copies available in my shop.
Fall Dash Quilt Video
I filmed a short video to go over the quilt and talk about some of the tips and tricks. Watch it above or on my YouTube channel here. I’ll also list the tips below with some helpful links.
Strip piecing makes this quilt go quickly. Not only can you strip piece sections for the pumpkin blocks, but you can also strip piece churn dash sections, sashing, and even nine-patch units. Half-square triangle sections are made larger and trimmed to size.
- The Mini Simple Folded Corners ruler is a great tool for making both the pumpkin and leaf blocks.
- Learn my technique for the stem blocks here.
- Also, this ruler is a time-saver if you’re using scraps or even Layer Cake squares or Fat Eighths to cut your strips for the pumpkins. The larger size is helpful for the sashing strips if you’re using yardage.
Pattern Details and Links
The Fall Dash quilt finishes at 53 ½″ x 68 ½″ and can be made with at least fat quarters or scraps and additional yardage. Find the pattern available in my shop now:
