Whirlwind quilt block with 4 strips – video tutorial

This is a fun block made with fabric strips.

You can make this block any size and use any number of strips.

The look and feel of the block will change depending on the number of fabrics, the types of prints and colours of the fabrics and the width of the fabric.

Check it out and have fun!

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

  2. I like this. Think I could pull this off. Could use some of those fabric that are chilling since thin strips. Always like your work and videos. Thanks for sharing.
    Day dreaming these days. Breast cancer found in May and been on roller coaster since it started. Chemo makes you just chill with fabrics.
