french braid

Two fun quilt blocks video tutorial

Today we revisit a French braid square block but most often you will find French braids in long strips. So you can keep going once you hit the square size.

The hexagon block is a lot fun to make. It requires very accurate sewing and cutting so you get the required 60 degree angle for each piece. Double check each triangle with the 60 degree template (pdf).

So let’s 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.
