If your fabric scraps breed like mine you’ll be thrilled to put these two classic blocks into practice.

Both are classic blocks made modern: a sawtooth star and a monkey wrench.

Let’s learn to make the blocks:

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

  1. Hello Teresa.

    For some time now the links to the videos that you give in your emails for the new blocks just lead to a static image.

    OK for me as I can pick up the link on your Facebook postings but maybe not OK for all your subscribers.

    Thanks anyway for the constant stream of ideas and technique and all the various options for each block.

    Best wishes,
