Turnabout patchwork – Modern shoofly: 1 block 4 quilt patterns

My publisher Martingale is going out of business and as a result I’ve had the chance to buy the rights to my book Turnabout patchwork.

And now I’m offering individual chapters of my book as digital downloads.

I’m starting with the block on the cover of my book: Modern shoofly.


The download contains instructions to make one block and 4 possible variations of the block turned into 4 different quilt patterns.

Patterns you get in the download

Flying rainbows: 41″ × 41″
Flying butterflies: 58″ × 58″
Flying flags: 52 1/2″ × 41″
Flying confetti: 58″ × 58″

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

  1. Teresa, I wondered about how you would do with Martingale going down. I purchased your book early on, then shared with a friend and purchased a new one for me 🙂 Wishing you all the best, looks like you have a good plan!
