Two popular quilt blocks video tutorial

Cross and crown is a block that comes with its own sashing. It is also know as Goose tracks, Flying Darts, Crossroads just to name a few.

Tropical flower is basically a quarter log cabin with a triangle on each end.

It’s quick and easy to make and it looks better when placed on point.

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.
