Quilt magnets pattern – video tutorial

I loved making these tiny 1 1/2″ blocks so much that I thought you would too.

The video demonstrates how to make the block with foundation piecing.

In such small sizes I find it’s a lot easier to get an accurate block than using traditional piecing.

Let’s get to it!

How to make a finished 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ quilt magnet

Foundation piecing paper

I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick.

You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.

Foundation paper ruler

Note: I recently started to use an Add a quarter ruler, the yellow ruler in the video, after some followers recommended it and I have to say it’s a true time saver.

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
