Quilted brooches video tutorial

Lately I’ve been getting into tiny quilting if you can call it that.

This time I’ve made 2″ X 2” quilted brooches.

Let’s get to it!

How to make a finished 2″ x 2″ quilted brooch

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.

Small Plus sign quilt – Video tutorial

I love English Paper Piecing (EPP).

I always haven an EPP project nearby. It usually keeps me from falling asleep while watching TV!

And also it’s always handy having some projects at hand when travelling, particularly if you spend a lot of time in public transport.

So how to EPP?

Start with this very easy project. Perfect for using your small scraps.

What paper to use?

I print my EPP shapes on cardstock.
