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.

2 quilting shortcuts video tutorial


  1. Could you show us examples of how to use smaller squares in border work? I have many scraps of patriotic fabrics that I have left over from making Quilts of Valor (www.qovf.org) and I would love ideas on how to build pieced borders on some of my quilts. Bonnie Camp, Wisconsin, USA

  2. I live in Texas and my local fabric store had your book for sale today (11/28/2018). Of course I bought my copy and I love it. I am a new quilter and your tutorials have helped me so much. Thank you for all you do for those of us who want to learn to quilt!

  3. Really? Thank you for letting me know. I knew they were being sent to distributors this week but that was fast! I’m very happy you like the book. I’m a bit anxious at the reception it’ll get.


  4. Border blocks ok. I’ll add that to my long list of video topics. Keep the suggestions coming 😊👍


  5. Bonnie, while I come up with something on borders you can search for seminole on my blog. I have 2 tutorials on Seminole borders.


  6. Karin, you should be able to use a different size of rectangle as long as they are the same size and together they make a square


  7. I’m so happy you posted the this. I found it on Pinterest and tried it. It’s wonderful! I’m recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury 🤕, but I didn’t want to lose my sewing! This works & looks 👍.
