Turnabout square in a square is a square with some strips stitched around.
My starting squares are the same size and so are my strips. But if you wanted to go really funky you can start with different size squares and strips.
The double hourglass is a scrap buster. Just mix and match fabric strips as demonstrated on video and make a great scrap quilt.
You can use wider strips if you prefer.
8 strips 1 3/4” x 16” in different colours.
4″ x 4″.

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:
- Squaring up blocks
- Assembly and quilting
