Two Hidden wells quilts with solids – video tutorial

This technique was developed by Mary Ellen Hopkins in 1989 for her Hidden wells quilt.

Hidden wells can be done with a different number of strips in different or equal widths.

I’ve made this block before in prints in different widths and different number of strips if you’d like to check the tutorials.

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.
