Tennessee waltz block A: snowball – video tutorial

This week let’s make a Tennessee Waltz quilt.

The Tennessee Waltz quilt is made of 2 blocks that alternate: a snowball block and a block called the 54-40 or Fight block.

Apparently the 54-40 or Fight block a US historical name from 1844 based on political opinions and controversies. 

I hope you enjoy it and see the potential of this easy quilt block on its own while you wait for the next block to complete the quilt.

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. Your sewing for stitch and flip I do every time I sew with that method. Easiest way to put the left over HST pieces to good use.
