This is the fourth block in the Mysteries Down Under quilt.
Contrary wife -not fond of the name- is a classic 9-patch block. I came across the block when I made a Farmer’s wife sampler quilt a few years ago.
It’s a quick and easy block perfect for beginners. It can be made as a one single block quilt or as part of the Mysteries Down Under quilt.
Check out the different designs you can make with just one single block at the end of the video.

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.
