Oh Susannah block video tutorial

This is a quick block to make and a classic.

Choose fabrics with high contrast for best results.

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.
