Scrappy tube quilting technique

It’s scrappy time again. My favourite style.

And it’s time to do tube quilting again.

Tube quilting is a technique I’ve done tutorials on before like my Tube quilting with hexagons, tube quilting with strips, or the bargello tutorials I’ve posted in the past.

This block is perfect for layer cakes.

So let’s have a look again at this technique and let’s get our fabric scraps out and let’s get quilting!


  • Assorted fabric strips
  • 3 1/2″ fabric strips

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
