Order 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.

  3. I didn’t measure each square so I can’t tell you that. You can also start at a different size. I’d do a test to see if I like the technique and take notes.


  4. Please could you refer to my book Sew Simple Pineapple by Karin Hellaby. This will give you measurements for each stage and lots more sewing tips. The book can be ordered from your local quilting/book shop.
