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.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

Video tutorial: improv quilt as you go block


  1. Teresa, Any chance that you have done a tutorial on making a clamshell quilt? I’m trying to figure out how to put the uppermost row ‘partially’ together, as it will be trimmed away in the final stage. It just seems like there would be a way to cut just the lower portion of the clamshell, stitch upward a tad bit, then be able to attach the next row. AND I see people sewing the next row on left to right and right to left, some put the concave on top, some put the convex on top. I realize it becomes a personal preference, but I’ve watched your YouTube videos and I can understand your methods. So, if you have done a video, point me in the right direction and I’ll go view it. Thanks for all that you share with us. Luann

  2. With the quilt as you go is there a way to add the backing and not have it show the sash part?
