Block 1 video tutorial – Michael Miller “Peek into batiks” QAL

Peek into batiks BOM - free quilt pattern

Let’s start the quilt with block 1!

I’m making the quilt with AccuQuilt but cutting instructions can be downloaded for rotary cutter as well.

Block 1 patterns

  • Download block 1 from Michael Miller blog. You can download both AccuQuilt and rotary cutter instructions.

Materials for the full quilt




I was very lucky to receive an AccuQuilt GO! with an 8″ Qube and Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day book of patterns.

I had considered purchasing one for a while but I was undecided. Having used one I really like it. It’s fast and accurate which makes it a joy to use.

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.

  1. I absolutely LOVE your videos. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. I have a couple of jelly rolls of batiks. Do you have a video on how to use them to make blocks?

  2. Hi Leota, this QAL is a monthly event. We’ve released block 1 so far. The idea is to make a block every month. You can also share your pictures on Instagram or Facebook. Happy quilting 😊
