New year, new hobby? Nine patch quilt block with pre-cuts

Is learning a new skill one of your new year resolutions. You’re in luck! Today we have a really basic beginner tutorial for a nine patch quilt block with precuts.

A nine patch was the first block I attempted though at the time I cut my own 5″ squares.

Quilting with pre-cuts is quick and easy and if you’re starting it certainly helps.

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
