Fabric folding for quilts video tutorial

I love fabric folding and other techniques that add texture to any garment or quilts.

The best known quilt that used fabric folding is a cathedral window quilt.

The demo on the video is for a mini quilt not for a block. For a bigger quilt, keep adding white squares that you then fill in with print fabric squares.

The other block is an origami flower. You can add just a few to a quilt to add some interest to a quilt.

Learn these fabric folding techniques with this quick video:

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.
