This week we’ll assemble the blocks into a quilt top.
Follow the instructions on page 23 of Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist to assemble the quilt top.
Assembling the quilt top
This QAYG technique is kind of half way between regular quilting and QAYG because the backing is added in one piece. But the backing is added with few stitching lines making it still an easier assembly method if you don’t have a long arm quilt.

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:
- Squaring up blocks
- Assembly and quilting
