Announcement: Tulip factory Quilt Along

10 September to 21 October

Today I’m announcing my next Quilt Along (QAL) which will start on 10 September.

Tips on selecting fabrics

I created this video for my previous QAL but it’s applicable to the Tulip factory QAL.

Fabric needs for a coordinated quilt

The fabric needs for each individual colour apply to a coordinated quilt like the one on the right. I made my version scrappy, so if you do as me you’ll need only a few scraps for each block. The fabric needs for the background fabric remains the same for both.

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
