Sampler quilt tutorial

Blocks
The instructions to make the blocks are from crazy mom’s quilt-a-long.

Flying geese border
I used the No Waste Flying Geese method to make the border. As explained in Blocks & Swaps & Patterns & Tips.

Piano Keys sides border
The border is 8″ wide. The strips that make the border are 2 1/2″ inches when finished.

Back
The back is made of 8″ blue tone squares and 8″ wide strips of plain white fabric.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. Beautiful sampler… I’m nearly finished making one too and its really inspirational to see how much work you put into the back of yours too.

  2. Manuela, I don´t have the quilt with me but from memory the flying geese are 5 inches wide without the seam allowance and the sashing is 3 inches finished, so each strip is 1 inch finished.
