We’ve done this block before even though it looks quite different just by using different prints on different spots.
54-40 is a classic and you often see it in combination with other nine patch blocks to get beautiful quilt layouts.
For instance if we match it with a churn dash we made previously the results are spectacular. Can you see the illusion of curves on the final design?

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.
- Order Turnabout Patchwork on Amazon
- Order Turnabout Patchwork directly from Martingale
- Book depository
