Two projects for a rainy weekend – video tutorials

Coin quilts come in different designs but usually they are made with stacks of rectangles that mimic a stack of coins. Some have sashing in between the stacks and others, like in this case, don’t. In either case a coin quilt is one of the easiest and fastest quilt designs you can make.

Coin quilts are great as scrappy quilts.

The top stitched hexies is a project that mixes hand sewing an machine sewing. I used 5″ charms cut into 4 squares for my project. The fabric is an old collection from Cosmo Cricket. They used to have such beautiful fabrics but they seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth.

Where can I get Cosmo Cricket fabrics? Does anyone know?

Which one will you make?

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.

Two quilting projects for a rainy weekend


  1. I purchased your book from Amazon. The only thing wrong with it is there are NO illustrations to go with the quilt patterns. Illustrations, not videos, would be a tremendous asset.
