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.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

  1. Here’s what I tweeted:

    “This is brilliant! Non-Quilters, watch past the first minute of sewing. What happens next will blow your mind!

    “Video tutorial: Strip quilts https://youtu.be/8LMQXikQnkk via @YouTube”

    Your videos are always perfectly clear and consise, easy to follow and thoroughly entertaining!! I skip most quilting vids, I become bored 5-10 minutes into most of them. Yours don’t drag us thru the extraneous and instead of focusing on the presenter, they are right down to the exact needed presentation of what to do.
    With lots of intrinsic humor, subtle yet always clear extra directions & tips (I love your flick of finger to show where the sewing line is going to be), and —
    THE BEST time-moving, no time-wasting, interest-building, fully entertaining editing I’ve seen in 30+ years of watching independent films and videos!
    Bravissima! Brilliant! For non-quilt and quiltees alike.
    Thank you.
