pickle dish

Curves and foundation video tutorial – Pickle dish quilt block

Pickle dish is a traditional block. It looks a bit like the double wedding ring quilt block.

I was inspired by a vintage quilt to make the demo block in red, blue and white.

While it can be a bit tricky to make,  it’s a lot easier when doing the spiky curved piece with foundation piecing.

The rest of the block is assembled traditionally.

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
