Chunky Churn Dash

I saw this quilt at the show last weekend and was smitten.  It was part of the silent auction.

It took me a few minutes to figure out what made the blocks different. The middle pieces are half the size of the corners.
I really liked the look, so I sewed up a few. They will finish at 6.25 inches.

These will go into the runner instead of the other variation of the churn dash block. The finished runner won’t resemble the Butter & Eggs pattern at all. I just don’t have the pattern following gene.
Except for the background fabric, I’m using scraps to make the blocks. These 1930 repro fabrics have been hanging around for years.
