Today we’re making the first block and we’re making it with foundation piecing.
See page 3 of the pattern for details on making the block.
If you’re going to be making the quilt with traditional piecing the next tutorial is coming in a couple of days. Check the schedule.
FPP tulip block
You can make the block with regulary copy paper and sewing through the paper, or using freezer paper and reusing the template. Check out the video on freezer paper below to learn the technique.
- Purchase the Tulip factory pattern. I will sell the pattern at half price until the end of the QAL.

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
