Season’s greetings

Happy holidays and happy 2023 to everyone!

I hope you have a good time over the Holiday season -for those who celebrate.

Thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to stop by and to those of you who’ve left very kind comments about my work.

Like every year, I’ve made a short compilation of just some of the blocks I’ve made this year. I hope you like it.

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

See all the quilts in the book in a real life project
