Jam and Butter Quilt Pattern


About the pattern

This version of a churn dash quilt is called Jam and Butter – the butter part is obvious ???? and the jam part is because the churn dashes are all jammed together with no sashing between them. And jam goes with butter right? 

I’ve done my Jam and Butter totally scrappy, even the background. I’ve been quilting quite a while, so it’s easy for me to raid my fabric stash to make a scrap quilt – if this is not the case for you, consider buying fat quarters for the churn dashes and yardage for the background. And there’s no rule that says all the churn dashes have to be different! It’s your quilt, you can do it any way you want! ???? 

The pattern has directions for three sizes, from a small wall hanging to a throw size. The medium size is a generous baby quilt, and that’s what the cover quilt is. As always, there is a diagram and a coloring sheet so you can audition your own color choices.
