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.

  3. Hello, I just signed-up and purchased the pattern. I’m so excited. I’ve never done a quilt along, I’m not sure what I need to do. Can you advise me? Thank you.

  4. Hi Cathy, a quilt along is simple. We make the quilt together. The schedule shows what we’ll be making or learning on particular days. You can show photos of your progress on my Facebook group or event page.
