Sewing strips and slicing them sheds very different blocks as you can see from my chapter Coordinated strips.

There are so many variations possible  that I could have written a full book of patterns with just this block.

You’ll find this table runner and the 2 other quilt patterns with this block in Turnabout patchwork.

So you can see all the variations in a real project we’re joined by Afton of Quilting ModLinda of The Quilting BikerBrandy of Pampered PettitLeanne of Devoted Quilter and Andy of A Bright Corner

Don’t forget to check their blogs to see their great work as well as read their experience with my book.

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.
