Two quick blocks: delectable mountains and attic windows quilt blocks

Today’s blocks are skill builders.

Delectable mountains: This technique can be made with several strips. In this case the block has just 3 strips. It can be made coordinated or scrappy. Either way the result is a spectacular quilt.

Attic window is a classic. This block is constructed with Y seams. On the video I demonstrate Y seams are achievable as long as you follow some steps.

Check it out!

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
