You can watch a swirling seams demo on a four patch and a nine patch quilt block:

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.

  1. I hv watched this 6 times but still could not tell just what and how to unpick to get the swirling seams. The printed instruction could not clearly be seen and it was so fast I never could get it. Can you email a typed version of the instructions? Thanks.
