Triangle log cabin quilt block – video tutorial

Today I’m posting a tutorial for a foundation piecing block. I know many of you aren’t fond of the technique though I really think you should give it a go because it opens up a lot of possibilities. And just look at the beautiful scrappy quilts you can make with all those scraps you’ve saved up!

Let’s learn to make the block with this video demonstration:

Foundation piecing paper

I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick. 

You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.

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

See all the quilts in the book in a real life project
