The quilt on the cover of the book is called Flying rainbows. It illustrates the basic concept of my book Turnabout patchwork.
So easy yet so versatile. You will find 1 quilt pattern featuring this block in the book and 3 illustrated quilt-pattern variations.
So you can see all the variations in a real project we’re joined by Anorina of Samelia’s mum, Tammy of Tamarinis, Becca of Pretty Piney, Laura of Slice of π Quilts, Gretchen of Snug Harbor Quilts, Raewyn of Stitching Farmgirl and Sarah of Saroy
These fantastic quilt designers and quilters have made projects using a modern shoo fly block. Don’t forget to check their blogs to see their great work as well, read their experience with my book and enter their giveaways.
This giveaway is CLOSED.
Today I’m giving away one of my patterns, The 4 seasons of the heart, which is a bit similar to Modern Shoofly.
The pattern contains instructions to make 4 quite different looking quilts using the same starting 9-patch block. The pattern has instructions to make all 4 quilts in different sizes: crib, lap, twin and queen.
You can see all the variations on this video.
To win, tell us in the comments which one is your favourite quilt made with this block: Flying Rainbows, Flying Butterflies, Flying Flags or Flying Confetti.
While you’re checking the quilts don’t forget to enter the giveaways on my fellow quilters and designers blogs.

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.
