Two easy quilt patterns using 2 blocks

Propeller is one of my favourite quilt patterns.

I made it combining 2 simple classic blocks: an Eccentric star and a Double X block. It’s a quick and and easy lap quilt.

Have you made your first quilt yet? Flowers in the garden could be the one!

This is an easy quilt using two classic blocks: a calico puzzle block and a shoofly block. Choose highly contrasting fabrics for best results.

Check out the different colour combinations at the end of the video.

Quilt patterns

The quilt patterns include fabric needs including batting, backing and binding. They also include instructions to make the blocks and to assemble the quilts.

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.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding
