This is one of my favourite techniques. So much so that I’ve written a book about it.
This technique is about playing with blocks, about trying things out, about what ifs.
How to sew, slice and turn a block
If you like disappearing blocks check out my book Turnabout patchwork. It’s a book about slicing and turning blocks like this one.

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
