Churning Fourteen Top Completed

My Churning Fourteen top is completed and hanging at the shop.

For the record, I really love this pattern. I love the different sizes of churn dash blocks. I love the scattered, non-grid layout. I love that it uses fat quarters for the center. I also love the fabrics I used.

Because I'm just not capable of following a pattern completely, I opted to cut my outer border wider than the pattern suggested. I cut my outer border to finish at the same size of the smallest churn dash blocks, which is 3.5". I think it would also look good with an even wider outer border. 

My version with finish at about 58" by 72".

Pattern information is in this post

The quilt looks lovely. I completely understand the "not being able to follow a pattern" thing. I almost always make changes or as I like to say "alternative design choices."

That is so pretty. I like the different sizes of the churn dash too.
