Though I’ve listed this pattern as a variation of Whirling Diamond, I decided to give it the name it had in my quilt block book. There are online quilt block designs called Churn Dash that look very different, but I suppose one woman’s churn dash might easily differ from another’s. Churn Dash and the pattern that follows (Whirling Diamond variation 2) look like their namesake, but their diagrams are dissimilar.
I think the back of this one shows the pattern better than the front. It might be that I should have switched colors and had the darkest value as the main color, but I think the problem is really that the pattern is too thick.
The photo below shows some rough edit work to modify the pattern. I call this one version B.
You might want to try this third version of the pattern, if you like a skinny churn dash.
